I can even tell you what color the rubber diaphragm was. It was red. So now my gas cap will not hold pressure; just bleeds air. I can't believe the damn thing costs $80 bucks.


I would have just used it as is Joe,
on my '94SE I purposely drilled a hole in the gas cap, and that stopped a lot of my problems.
I lived in Phoenix AZ then, and high temps were causing problems....
we were getting 125* days for a week at a time, and the '94 was my Daily Driver to work and back then.
