    This thermostat keeps my engine temp so steady I thought at first that my temp gauge had a problem. It allows for very fast warm up of the heater as well. For the purpose of increased system air bleed, I drilled two small holes through the flange on opposing sides. Works very well!

              When replacing the thermostat be sure to bleed system which may have been the problem rather than the thermostat.

                            A:

                            With reference to your inquiry on the Stant Superstat™ Super Premium Thermostat, 195 Degrees Fahrenheit - part# 45849, the following procedure is for removing and testing the thermostat: Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain some of the coolant, a gallon should be enough. Enough so the fluid won't pour out. Remove the upper radiator hose. Remove the thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat. Locate and write down the temperature stamped on the lip of the thermostat. Fill a pot with cold water and a thermometer. Place the thermostat into the cold water. Turn the burner on. Watch the thermometer. When the temperature rises to the number you recorded then the thermostat will start to open. If it does not or if it doesn't open until a different temperature (hotter usually) then the thermostat is bad and should be replaced. If it opens at the designated temperature, then the thermostat is just fine. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                          how do I install the thermostat

                            A:

                            Instructions to install a thermostat: 1. Open the radiator cap, but before you do, place a thick rag like a bath towel over the cap on the radiator and slowly turn it while listening for the pressure to be released. When it stops remove the cap completely. 2. Locate the thermostat by finding the two-inch thick black hose coming out of the top of the radiator. The hose will end somewhere on the top of the engine and it will be clamped onto the thermostat cover. The cover will have two bolts on each side. 3. Remove the hose by using the screwdriver or pliers to pull off the clamp. Some auto manufacturers use stainless steel clamps with a screw and some use a clip clamp. 4. Twist the hose to loosen it from the thermostat cover. Use the spray lubricant if the hose is difficult to loosen. Be aware that a considerable amount of coolant will pour out of the hose when you take it off. 5. Loosen the two bolts on each side of the thermostat cover with the appropriate-sized ratchet socket or open-ended wrench. Lift the cover off and remove the thermostat. 6. Use the putty knife or scraper to remove the old gasket from the thermostat cover and cover base. 7. Use an emery cloth to sand away any remaining traces of the gasket. Make sure the cover and cover base are smooth and clean or the cover will leak. 8. Drop the new thermostat with the spring mechanism down into the engine. Notice there is a narrow recessed area where the top of the thermostat fits. 9. Spread the gasket sealant on the thermostat cover that makes contact with the engine and on the cover base. Place the gasket on the cover base, making sure the bolt holes line up. 10. Replace the thermostat cover and screw the bolts in place. 11. Replace the radiator hose. 12. Wait for the gasket sealant to dry before starting the engine. Read the directions on the sealant package to determine how long the sealant needs to dry. 13. When dry, start the engine and run it until it reaches the engine's normal operating temperature. Check the thermostat cover and hose to make sure there are no leaks. 14. Check the coolant level and replace what is needed.

                            The causes for a car leaking antifreeze may be with the cracked radiator hoses, look where they are clamped to the radiator and engine. The radiator itself could be rusted or cracked somewhere.

                            Yes, But it may not keep you engine from overheating, if it is an Aftermarket Supercharger. Factors other then your Thermostat may be causeing your engine to overheat. Other Factors to look into are Intercooler, Aftermarket performance cooling system, and Engine Timing.

                            If your thermostat has gone bad, then replacing it will help it from overheating.

                            The two main locations for thermostats are either under the water pump or under the thermostat housings. These parts are usually not that hard to remove, but accessing them can sometimes be difficult. Depending on what vehicle you have, you may have a little difficulty accessing it. One you have accessed the thermostat, you should be able to pull it out or pop it out using a screw driver. Then you can put the new one back in and put everything back together.

                          The list shows a 180 degree and a 195 degree thermostat. How do I know which one I should use?

                            Go to autozone.com. There they will tell you what the OE temperature should be.

                          Does this item come with the O ring or do I have to purchase it separately?

                            New thermostats come with a new gasket in the packaging when purchased so one would not need to be purchased seperately.

                            No it does NOT come with a gasket. You must purchase it separately.
