Where are they making these !! As you will notice that there was a tiny base crack. This is new. There was no manhandling. This is a pressure crack.
That said: can I get a bottle that is more reliable than this modern day trash ! DEZ

No, you cannot.

Well, actually you can, you just have to dig up some $$ to pay for NOS GM stuff.

About $85 plus any applicable taxes and it's yours! GM p/n 14013344.

Both of my wiper jugs and the coolant jug in my Regal are from Mike's Montes, they have been in there for years without any issues.

I got a feeling that even though you may not have manhandled it, it already has been prior to you getting it. No matter if you get it from Dixie or mikesmontes you’ll likely find all the aftermarket ones came from the same place. Likely made of chinesium. Even so I haven’t heard of the tanks being pure junk. But like anything else you might have one out of hundreds that has an issue.

have you noticed where most things are made circa the last 20 years or so?

I can't swear by it but... I think all these repo parts are made in the same factory, sent to a distributor that sends them to evrey single aftermarket seller. Only difference may be shipping and a few pennies price difference.

Thanks 40 $somthing What’s a few bucks more for no leak. Question while I have you. Do you think the coldcase radiator. Top of the line. Mind you. Cracked it? Or am I nuts. DEZ
 
I got both the Coolant & Washer-Fluid reservoirs from Dixie back in 2019 & they're both still good to go.

Do you think the factory originals are going to be worth anything?

I might have several in the basement. We never use them because they are in the way of the turbo lol.
