While you're there, inspect the hoses as well. If they're original, as indicated by a date stamp and "GM" stamped the hoses, definitely replace them as well. If they look like they've been replaced before and are in good shape, reuse them. Inspect the serpentine belt. If it's near the end of the tensioner travel or chunking replace that too. HTH. -Jim
