4 Answers


Thermostat opening, 188--206 degrees F. Usually the first number is when the thermostat starts opening and the second number, full open. What kind of problem are you having? 150 degrees F on a fully warmed up engine, doesn't sound right, to me.

When I went to change thermostat .there was no fan comes on when I start the car.looks like the fan is wired to the fuse box

Not sure .I live in florida so I don't use heat

Well I had to change water pump. Water pump was bad.i 've never paid any attention to the temp gauge. I just happens to look at it .while my car was running while I was sitting in my driveway.and the temp was a little bit over 150...just didnt know if that was supposed to be that high.
