Yesterday night I noticed while checking the oil in my car that the engine reservoir was empty, since I could check well at night I waited until morning today before leaving for work, I check for leaks, houses thermostat housing, nothing, while checking the hose that goes from the water reservoir to god knows where.. Voila! I found the leak, big time.. the water reservoir is broken :(
does anybody know where can i buy it besides the stealership? and how much should I expect it to cost?

any websites to check for prices? and also, water reservoir is the correct name for it?
thank you all for your priceless help.

Ibarria.

Not hard to replace......a couple of squeeze hose clamps and metric cap screws. A little tight to work around, but do-able in 30 minutes, start-finish. (Use a quilted fender cover) Look at www.car-parts.com. Surf around there and either chat or call a junkyard ("vehicle recycle facility") somewhere in TX. $25, tops. Might as well do the whole coolant replacement while you're at it.............it sure helps if you add your vehicle model and year to your header........

I just called a cadillac stealership, thehy want $90 plus tax, new, I havent called the yunkyard yet, but I was thinking, that might as well pay for something that I know is going to last at least another 100K
