Hey, does anyone have some suggestions on good vendors to find parts for my 97 eagle vision 3.5L? Specifically ive been looking for the exhaust manifolds and none of the local parts stores (autozone, oreillys, advance, and napa) have them, not even for me to order. I've also tried good old rock auto and came up empty.
If you can go used, look it up (drill down by vehicle and part) on Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market
You can search by state or region, or the whole country. All the stocking salvage yards will come up in order by price. The system knows interchange parts (i.e., what similar models and range of years use the same part), so that helps not having to worry about missing parts that are the exact same from different models and years of vehicles.
After the search results come up, where you can click page of the search results, click the page number with the asterisk - that takes you to the dividing line between where price is given and no price is given - so you're at the lowest prices where price is given - then scroll upward to find suitable part - increasing price as you scroll up.
There's usually an indication of condition of the part on each listing. The phone numbers and email addresses of the salvage yards are given. I have found that they don't respond to emails (maybe because I've always looked for smaller, lower dollar items - if I was looking for an engine or something higher dollar, they might respond), but they do answer the phone. Have your info. ready because if you can't quickly describe what you need or they otherwise feel you're wasting their time, they'll hang up on you. If you don't find something local (usually the case), no problem - they all will generally ship to you at their cost of shipping - most smaller items are $10-$20 shipping cost.
