Doubt it's the FSR (aka porcupine). When it fails, the blower acts wonky, but that's about it.

If you have an automatic transmission, you will probably need the transmission thermostat. If fits into the bottom of the expansion tank and most guys break it trying to replace the expansion tank. If you're really lucky you wont, but it's best to have a spare on hand just in case. THis is NOT the same part as the coolant thermostat.
