    Because of indicated higher water temperature readings on my guage, I replace the standard thermostat with a Superstat Thermostat by Stant, hoping to get better flow volume at a faster rate. I observed almost immediate results as indicated by a lower guage reading. Installation was simple in my case (1986 el Camino). REMEMBER TO BUY THE TERMOSTAT HOUSING GASKET as it does not come with the thermostat.

    I have a GMC diesel truck that requires two thermostats, these are standard thermostats not high flow like the originals but they will fit. I'm not sure they will do the job when the hot weather comes in and towing a load. I plan on buying the delco high flow thermostats in the near future.

              I bought this thermostat to replace in dec2013 to replace one that I purchased in spring of 2013. the old one was marked as a 195degree but it only took 2 min. and it was wide open and guage on dash would just barely cross the lower mark. had to replace it with a new one at my expence and this one seems to be working fine in 9 degree weather.

                  I think everyone else has covered it all pretty well. My only comment is the only reason I gave this product 4 instead of 5 stars is because it doesn't come with a gasket. I know it's not SUPPOSE to, but it SHOULD.

                  Comments about Stant Superstat™ Super Premium Thermostat, 195 Degrees Fahrenheit:

                  I've been replacing thermostats in my vehicles for over 25 years. I've only had to replaced ONE of the Slant brands I've put in and some of my vehicles I've added well over 300K too.

                  This model fit my 600$ 1989 Ford F-150 5.0L It was a bit of a pain to put in, but that's not the parts fault where Ford decided to put the thing.

                  Pro-Tips: Use a little Permatex sealant to hold it and the gasket in place while you bolt the housing back together and make sure you clean the engine block and housing well! (Scrape, then use a dremel with a little wire wheel to get any gunk / old gasket / corrosion off.)

                  You will need a gasket!

                      Possibly. Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.

                      Choosing which temperature of thermostat to go with depends on the climate of where you live. For just average weather, I would stick with whichever thermostat your vehicle originally came with. If the climate is alot colder than most it would be best to use a thermostat with a higher temperature thermostat and vice versa.

                      Yes this would be a good one, but I'd go with a lower alternative tempature honestly. As far as warranty... like they actually warranty thermostats anyways. It would help if the people that work for AAP actually answer the question asked and not just chime in about a warranty... that WASN'T Asked about
