    is the screw removeable? prob just has an o-ring inside that is worn out. that would be a cheap fix if that was the case. good luck

    ha ha ya autozone does do a shitty job hiring people that know anything. i work at the one here in town but only on saturday because of my other job and because im the only one who knows shit lol. we hired a guy wh has never drove a car in his life always rides a bike and thinks that diesel trucks have spark plugs just like cars and that they can use a 5w-20 motor oil lol it's hilarious to watch him work

    Translation: $90 and change means it's just over $90... And it is a Toyota OEM part...
