Hey folks, new guy here. Been lurking for a few weeks, and thought I'd jump in here.
Regarding t-stats, the quality has taken a dumper on these things in the last 10 years. To avoid some of the cycling (on a 195 - opening at 205, falling to 180, swinging back and forth - then finally settling down, those types of things) - the hot ticket - pun intended, is to drill two 1/8" holes thru the thermostat, 180 degrees from each other. It will ELIMINATE the cycling, and it will also drop the temp rating around 5-10 degrees. It slightly adds to the warmup time, but I can certainly live with that. No drop in fuel economy (I get 29 on the highway with wife and 2 kids - and 25 in mixed driving - car just turned 120K).
Bought my 95 in 2002, intake was replaced prior to my purchase. Hope its a good one. And thanks for the tip on the foglights. I impregnated a racoon with foglight parts last week, and got a $56 quote on a new one. Those Navigators from Wally-World are the cats ***!
Anyone want to buy just 1 OEM foglight? $20 shipped!
