    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 replaced my thermostat because the heater wasn't putting out enough heat. That was right after I flushed the system and replaced the anti-freeze. I monitored the engine temperature with my ODBCII tool and while driving over 10 miles, it never indicated an engine temp much over 190 degrees. I was hoping it would show right at 195 like I ordered. End result, the heater still isn't putting out so I parked it waiting on warmer weather to reverse flush the heater core. I've always had good luck with Stant thermostats in the past and didn't expect any problems with this one but...

        Replaced it when changing my intake gaskets on my 95 f150. Filled it with fluid and the engine warmed up and it kicked on right at 195 and stayed there. Didn't think the old one was bad until i bought this one. Now my temp gauge stay's in one place no matter what kind of driving I'm doing

                    Got this on the jeep fairly quick, have 150k on the jeep and figured its time for a change since its oem T-stat,
                    Works fine and Good quality, Worth the $$
                    nothing else comes in the box,
                    tho the spring looks heavy duty, well put together.

                            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

                          would this be a good product in a racing application where you would run 100 laps nonstop at about 5000 rpms??

                            Unfortunatly, we cannot extend our warranty to parts used in racing applications.
