Got it... im shopping for parts now at bavarian autosports. Ever heard anything about JL Germany parts? They have a water pump thats only $27 with a metal impeller, thats like half the price.

If i wanted to just change the thermostat first, do i need to drain out all the coolant?

I ask because the NAPA autoparts down the street has a thermostat on the shelf for me I was hoping to just swap out real fast to temporarily fix the overheating problem. All the other stuff I had to order online to get a decent price, which means I will have to wait a week for free shipping or dish out like $60 for second day air. I'd hate to have to drain the coolant and bleed the system twice. I drive 20 miles a day to work and back and ground shipping takes a week.
