Now Im good with car history but when it comes to DIY im a under the hood version. So can someone give me a Step by step with pictures of what exactly to do. Thanks in advance
so u have lower engine temps? does this help hp in anyway?a t stat is like a valve. when the temp reaches a certain point it open and allows the coolant to flow through.
the stock one is rated at a higher temp so the 180 gives it enough fluid to allow for better cooling.
ahh sweet methapor...thanks scottThink of it this way - you like it cooler in the house so you lower the thermostsat in the house...you feel better and not as cantancerous(sp)..
The house tstat keeps the house cooler...the tstat in your car keeps it cooler..
The cooler the motor the more power it can make...to a point
ok, thanks...15 bucks or so. i got it at autozone. when they say "whats you\r make and model" tell em they dont need it and they will whine and tell you they do. theyre wrong.
tell em i want a thermostat for my car, i ahve the part number.
tell em 4128. they will punch taht in, and show u the screen, it should read... ugh what is the brand name.. its a white/black box with yellow lettering.
omg i had a realization, the brand from autozone is ValuCraft.
when you open it up, the actual tstat inside the box has the words "motorad" etched in it on one side, and "germany" in it on the other
