This is the reason I’m looking to delete this crap! I’m old school and too many moving parts scare me. Don’t want to get caught with my pants down hahadownside is if they fail.
mine failed during a 5HR vacation drive with family in a fully loaded explorer in the middle of summer. the coolant went to the red, and I had to really limp on the expressway until i got home.
if you're in a very warm environment, I could see just removing them completely as there's just a risk of them faulting.
It was the actuator itself, so the system didn't error out to open.
