      metal thermostat housing that can be delivered to Canada?

      After reading about the plastic thermostat housing thing, I figured I should be safe instead of sorry and replace it with a metal one before anything happens.

      I did find one on ebay, but it's a seller in the US that only ships to US. I have sent a message to find out if they can possibly ship to Canada, but haven't heard back yet.

      Anyone know where else one can find this part in metal instead of plastic? I have googled but not turned up anything useful.

      Go to the dealership. The metal housing is an updated part. Just ask for a 2008 Aveo to make sure.
      I leased Pontiac Wave from September 2006 to August 2011.

      Interesting. This newer metal part from the dealership is backwards compatible with the older models?

      I would assume so. I told them the year,make and model of my car and that's what I was quoted. It was $87.13 for the aluminum housing, thermostat and it included a seal/gasket.

      I even asked the parts person to check the housing to make sure it was aluminum and sure enough he told me it was. I'll be doing mine sometime shortly.

      Awesome, thanks for the info.

      I found one that potentially ships to Canada, the part itself I might be able to get for around $45 (plus shipping of course). If that doesn't pan out, I will check out the dealer.

      I would definitely prefer metal over plastic. Why should this part be made out of plastic anyway?

      Here is the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CHEVROLE ... ccessories

      I found the same seller on iOffer and they do ship to Canada. They accepted an offer of $45+shipping ($15 to Canada), so I'm getting it for a total of $60.
