We have an '01 3.0L but it is still below 80K.
Thanks, Zulu - appreciate your input.

Yes, as I look around, everything suggest replacement of all the cooling system compenents if one of them start to leak. Do you know if the tstat and housing are a PITA to replace? I'll look around for some description.

I drove the vehicle and it seems to shift and drive fine but, yes, I worry about longevity on the tranny, etc. I guess that's the gamble of buying used.

I'll take a look at xoutpost. Thanks again.
