Looks like all but the 4.3L diesel engine use 4 seasons part number 57231. Couldn't find a listing for the 4.3L diesel. The 3.8L V6 may require a metric bolt kit to mount. Which engine do you have? HTH. -Jim


I have the 5.0L V8 gasoline


You'll need to take the old one with you or a picture of it to the auto parts store for them to match up. There's a 9 o'clock mounting and a 12 o'clock mounting. HTH. -Jim


I just looked this up at work (NAPA). It appears that the difference is if you have the 305 or 307 V8. Both are listed as 5.0L. HTH. -Jim


I have a 307..But when I bought the car it didn’t have a compressor on it. Also I had the 57231 but the oil fill tube was in the way so I exchanged it and got the 57221 but I haven’t installed in yet

I see. That stinks that you don't have the old original one! I'm sure the difference is in the mounting and hose position between the 305 & 307. I didn't see the difference last night when I looked it up online but our cataloging at work shows the difference. Hopefully you have the correct one now! Keep us posted. -Jim
