    Comments about Stant Superstat Premium Thermostat, 195 Degrees Fahrenheit:

    Stant thermostats are generally reliable and I use them in most of my cars, but in this case, part #45979 is not a good replacement part for a generation 2 Taurus SHO despite being listed as a replacement part # for that car. Bypass valve is incorrect sizing and it lacks an air relief valve. Result equals higher nominal engine temperatures than OEM design. Bottom line, if you have a rare or limited production engine, Stant's model lineup is limited compared to other brands.

    Comments about Stant Superstat Premium Thermostat, 195 Degrees Fahrenheit:

    The website said this thermostat was a perfect match for my 1999 Ford Escort Station Wagon. When the guy doing my head gasket went to put it on, he said it wasn't the right one. I had a receipt and he took it back to the store but they would not let him return it because I bought it on line. I will NEVER use Advance Auto Parts again.
