Where to buy expansion tank & coolant gauge sensor

Looking for a new expansion tank as I noticed a crack on the seam of mine. As long as it's out, I'd like to find a gm/Delco coolant gauge sensor. Any leads or part #'s?

Found expansion tank for $98 shipped on eBay. Gm part #12528777

That's how much I paid at my local Chevy dealer. Might as well try there first.

What makes you think you need a "coolant gauge sensor?"

Guessing gauge doesn't work. Though broken/damaged wire is most likely the cause.

Yeah tha gauge works properly once in awhile, but mostly stays at the halfway mark and goes up from there as the engine warms up. The wire is intact.

Yeah, I called them and they confirmed its the correct one but weren't sure why it said it wouldn't fit. Same price as some used ones I was finding so I ordered it.

Mine temp gauge pegs when unplugged, acts right 10% of the time, wire is intact and not frayed. Found these #'s

GM PART # 25037332

AC-Delco # 213-77
