Truthfully I'm not sure. In was in at the dealer for an alignment since I just dropped the jeep and told them to check it out. I believe they just replaced the t-stat and gasket, the housing didn't look new. I can take a look again tomorrow and get back.hey mongoose did you change the housing to ?
Cooked motor....My thermostat was found to be closed. Hose off at engine connection and at radiator. Result-cooked motor. 54,000 miles. No indication of overheating. I am dealing with case manager from Chrysler and Quality Control. I am pissed. Mechanic at dealer says "yeah I started the truck and drove around the block blowing blue smoke, after cranking the ignition 3 times and I finally got it started." WTF? I just had the GC towed 140 miles.
Yeah it is 4128. (should also be on their cross ref. page under that number)anyone know the part# for the 180* tstat from autozone? i think its a motorad tsta. think my gasket blew or ripped last night and now there coolant all over and my temps ar getting up to about 230.
Only had this problem once on one of the 3 or 4 stats I have used. Think it was on the original 170 I put in. Had to file a little off all the way around and slip the gasket back on. Then it popped in. You could Dremel it a bit too.Bullit or billet? From
Billet tech?? What will this do? I got it out. The gasket that goes around the t-stat Itself ripped. But I Noticed that these 180* tstats with the gaskets don't fit there too big. What do I need to make it fit right?
