Gen.3 Vulcan intake compatibility
Today's job was replacement of the water pump and thermostat on my '99 vulcan sable. To most, the water pump would be the harder of the two. Well for me today, it was the water pump that went smoothest. I removed the old rusted one and installed a new one with no problem. I then proceeded to change the thermostat. Two out of the three bolts broke, and i tried to drill and tap them. That didnt go so well, so i'll just replace the entire lower intake which I can get for $17 at a u-pull scrapyard.
I was there a couple of days ago and saw some gen.3 taurus and sables with a vulcan.
Will any gen.3 (96-99) lower intake bolt right on with no hassle? I ask because i just read some threads saying that they were different over the years.
