thermostat housing in general. thing is pissing me off. the stuipid plastic top cover is cracked and theres a slow leak on the lower housing. and then theres the tranny lines that are leaking even though the lines are as tight as they can be..this started when the weather warmed up. i also figured out how to make the trunk lid stay up to compensate for the weight of the triangle or a wing, you just take the spring and hook it to the other set of holes where the springs are.

i had the same problem with my thermo. cover from the same place like yours.
first i thought the leak was coming from around the bolt but finally found a hair line crack next to the bolt that is very hard to see and was giving this leak.

once you put the new cover everything should be fine, but dont over tighten it or you will crack it as i did to my old cover when i over tightened it too much to stop the leak then i broke it.
