This is a good replacement tank but go elsewhere and get a different brand replacement cap.
The cap that comes with it is fine for a couple of months, then the vent clogs and it will overpressurize your system, until it leaks or blows at a weak spot.
Otherwise the tank is great.

Cheaply made tank.The cap leaks after a few short months, had to use original cap, lucky I saved it.The tank's upper black lid develops pinhole leaks after 2 short years, 30,000 miles.The bottom of the tank cracks shortly thereafter. The original lasted 130,000 miles.Dorman gives Advance Auto Parts a lifetime warrant but Advance Auto Parts only gives the consumer a 1 year warranty.

    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Coolant Reservoir:

    The original Ford or Mercury reservoirs develop stress cracks over time due to the pressure & temperature cycling of the cooling system. These small cracks eventually start to leak, resulting in coolant & pressure loss.

    This replacement part "resets the clock" and can be changed in 15 minutes or less. You'll a quart or two of the proper Ford-recommended coolant to replace was is lost during the swap.

      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Coolant Reservoir:

      Installed on 1997 ford Taurus after two years
      started to leak along black top. The free replacement on bolt hole didn't line up on left side to high one bolt holding it in place.
      Hopefully replacement will last for more than two years.

            The replacement reservoir fit just like the original and was very easy to install. I just installed, so I can't speak to it's performance or durability. I will tell you that if you buy it at your local Advance Auto store, expect to pay much more for it than advertised here. Over twice as much in fact. That tends to be how it is with any parts I look up online and then go to the store to buy. Even when they tell me online that it is in stock at the store. Go figure.
