      Fixed my coolant fountain...

      A bit of a pain to install, with all the hoses in there and also me not having right tools, but I got it in. All working. Free thermostat hiding inside. Nice!

      Temporary replacement

      The part fits perfectly. Only took 45 minutes to install. I’ve only had it on for a week or so and it hasn’t cracked yet. Good part until I can afford a metal one.

      Good replacement

      Second time I needed a new thermostat housing replacement. I decided to replace it myself. American Muscle has the best, and right parts. The fix was tedious, however, I got it done and haven’t had any problems since. I wish this part was aluminum to help with longevity. Either way AM shipped fast and it got the job done.

      Easy install

      Installation of this part to replace the original one took less than 1 hour. Had to remove throttle body, intake duct and PCV connector, then disconnect 3 hoses. All proceeded quickly and easily with 8 and 10 mm sockets, a standard screw driver, a wire brush and a large pair of pliers.

      Quick fix but doesn’t last

      Second one I buy from AM, took 45mn to be installed, the only problem is that the first one didn’t even last one year...plastic is not aluminum but it’s not the same price though.

      Perfect, solid, complete, easy to fit!!

      You could not get closer to an exact match, all bolt holes line up perfect, the fact you not only get the housing, but all inclusive with 'o' rings, new thermostat just makes this a perfect purchase, easy fitment and NO MORE LEAKS!! Shipping to AU awesome!!

      Defective

      I’m sorry to say it was defective and I had to return it. I had waited almost 2 weeks to order it since it was originally out of stock. The top was warped and I’m sure it would have leaked. American Muscle was very nice and offered to replace it immediately but I chose not to go that route and purchased my thermostat housing elsewhere. AM has always provided me with great service and great products—-this is in no way a negative review about them. These things happen.

      Housing assembly

      This is the third time I have replaced the plastic thermostat housing. It is a Florida car so we experience some extreme heat. The others I have purchased locally but this time I have chosen to buy from AM. Hope it lasts. I have always had great experiences from all my purchases from AM. Thanks

      Easy cheap replacement. Does as it should. Was nice already having the thermostat installed. 3 bolts and 3 clamps and it's out!

      Would buy this again if needed

      I've bought this part fro. AutoZone and it always fails. I have replaced at least 5 so far. This housing does come with the thermostat and it seems like a harder plastic and a much better product. Plus it's 20 dollars cheaper on A.M. hope this one last longer then a year
