There are generic ones at the auto parts stores, but from what I've heard Timesert is the best one. Do that and be done with it. If done properly you'll never have to worry about it again.
Exactly. The "timesert" kit I think is around a hundred or hundred-fifty bucks, but still a huge savings. Also the stealership will use "helicoil" fix and I've heard those aren't as good as "timesert".
