sounds like you need a thermostat,cover is thermostat houseing or goose neck.

Not to be ignorant, but I would suggest letting the garage purchase the part they need for you -- only because it sounds like they sent you on a wild goose chase. I've never heard of a "coolant housing," so they either misdescribed it, or don't know what they're talking about.

go to a dealership and ask if they can look up the part explosion on their computer and you can point at the picture of what you need. sounds like a dealer only item anyway.
