Great heavy duty part, lasts longer than the standard part of its equal. Only problem is that if it's used as a replacement in an every day vehicle is that it may run too cold and not allow the engine not to burn any moisture off in the oil from temp changes in the atmosphere. Other than that, it's a great item to help improve fuel mileage along with increased HP and Torque if used with other performance parts. Check and make sure that it will not run too cold and have the problem I stated, otherwise it's a wonderful price for the part.

Bought my 2002 Jeep Wrangler used, the radiator had just been replaced. Noticed a cooling problem right off, temp gauge reading 210 plus, creeping into the red zone while sitting at red lights. Even though this is Texas, and it's 100 degrees outside, this seemed excessive. Numerous possibilities as to the actual cause.

"New" radiator sprung a leak, so rather than screw around chasing my tail, I decided to replace not only the radiator, but the water pump, thermostat, and both radiator hoses at the same time. Ordered the 160 degree thermostat rather than the standard 195 degree. Now that everything's back together, temp gauge holds close to 200 degrees, not 160. But it's better, so I'm not going to complain too much.

                          They didnt have the 180 at my store so I took the 160 its enough to make the engine run smooth but cool enough that if it malfunctions I will have plenty of time react as the needle stays at the low end now as compared to the middle

                          Never have a problem with countless of these..Great for driving in Florida weather. Always slow boil in water on stove with a thermometor to check temp. Saves a lot of work. I don't care who makes it...Check it.

                                In most cases when a thermostat fails in the closed position because the spring closes the thermostat and the wax is what opens it up. When the wax pellet is gone from the thermostat, there is nothing left to open the thermostat up anymore.

                                YOu can purchase failsafe thermostats that will stick in the open position when they go out. I found them at a competitor for $13.99 actually. They have a copper mechanism to hold it open when it fails so that it continues to circulate. But, for the cost difference, if you are fairly close to a autoparts store, you could go with the cheaper one and just know you have less time to get it fixed ( which should be done anyway instead of running it after it fails for ever).
