Re: Which thermostat did you buy.

I went with a Stant 170*.

The CEL came on initially, but I burped the system, and re-topped off and
it has been fine for the past 5 days.

Runs a lot cooler on the gauge.

goodluck.

2007 Red Rock.... slightly modded, but BAD 2 the BONE!

Re: Which thermostat did you buy.

I used the Valucraft p/n 4128 from autozone. Works great and no CEL.

So far we are 1 for 1 on the CEL with the 170*. Great response so far. I appreciate it.

Re: Which thermostat did you buy.

....on mine, after I burped and topped off with fluid, and disconnected
battery. No CEL what-so-ever. 170* just needed to clarify.

If you are worried about it at all, just get the 180*, it seems to work
perfect for everybody.

Not trying to offend anybody, but if you are concerned enough about it to
take the time to pay for and install a t-stat, what is the point going from
203* down to a 195*?????????

Goodluck.

These things love the colder temps!
