Every place I have checked, Rock Auto, Advance Auto Parts, O Reilly's, NAPA, etc., all sell the Spectre and all for about the same price with the same guarantee.
Makes me think that is the only vendor out there and we are stuck with it.
I am going to take a look at it this weekend. Looks like, based on what you have said Henry, that my only option, regardless of the issue, is to take it out, exchange it and get new hoses..
Can't believe it only lasted 4 years, almost to the day. The original lasted for 9 years..
