hello fellas,
i was wondering if some one on here could answer a question i have. are there two different coolant reservoir for the lt1 d body and b body? my 95 fwb needs a new reservoir, mine has two nipples comong from the top one goes to the throttle body and the other i think is just an overflow hose. well i picked one up from an 96 impala/ caprice and this one only had one nipple on the top for the hose going to the throttle body , and no overflow hose , is that over flow hose needed for the fwb ? why are they different? will i run into any issues if i use the overflow for the impala/caprice/roadmaster vehicle:hmm:

I remember that a bunch of us this summer went through this question. I had my 95 FWB, and my friends 96 Caprice. The overflow issue was on our conversation for some reason, We were checking the Dex-Cool issue or something. Anyhow I looked in my Service Manual GM and it said you did not need the overflow for a reason I cannot remember. I will look this weekend and re-read the reason.

block the one to the radiator
mid 95 they changed to the single nipple
the rad one was only a vent
you wont have any issues
