It has the port for the coolant level sensor but comes with it plugged off for all those that don't want to use it.

What I liked about it was it was cheap at $80usd and made in Canada and not overseas. Don't know if that means it's better quality but I like things made in North America. I bought it on eBay.

Appreciate the info! Iíll see how this one looks when it comes in.

I have the aluminum one like pictured earlier in the thread, been working great for at least 5 years. I used the low coolant sensor hole for the steam port (using a homemade reducer).

No because later models cars don't have the sensor.
