Thermostat will open sooner car may not necessarily run cooler
Engine will run cooler Perhaps be less fuel efficient if factory design requires a 195 Interior heating will be cooler (thermostat will open sooner and therefore not produce as much heat).
Need to replace the thermostat with a 195 degree. That ought to do it.
195 degree is were your thermostat will open.which in hot weather causes cars to run a little hot.recommend use a alternate thermostat at 180 degree.helps run engine cooler and helps with cooler transmission.hope this helps
what degree thermostat 2000 vic
A 180 and a 170 degree thermostat are listed for it.
Yes, given that there aren't other issues with the cooling system. Is the fan in good shape? Is the fan shroud in good shape, or even there at all? Has the cooling system been flushed recently? If all of these things are in good working order, then yes, a 160 degree thermostat will obviously run cooler than a 195 degree thermostat will. One more question... Is the radiator big enough? That is the next question after you have eliminated possible problems with everything else.

Between 195 degrees and 210 degrees. You can put a 180 degree thermostat in it and it will run alittle cooler.
I believe 170 Degree Thermostat is pretty much basic.
Theoretically it would run cooler. The temperature rating on a thermostat tells you it's fully open position. So when the coolant temp reaches 160 then coolant will be allowed to flow to the radiator. Where as the 190 will open 30 degress warmer. And generally a lower temp is better. Just make sure you replace it with the OEM for the winter... or your engine won't warm up enough when it's cold.
Check your heater core. ANSWER I'm not a mechanic but isn't the thermostat supposed to be a 190 F unit. With a 160 F the engine would run cooler , read cooler on the guage, and the heat from your heater wouldn't get as warm as it should ( just like what happens when a 190 degree F. thermostat sticks open )
To change that thermostat you need to follow the top radiator hose to the motor from the radiator. It will lead to the thermostat housing on the block. The housing will be anchored with (2) bolts to the block (I think). Take the housing off and the thermostat is housed inside.you will have to replace it with a manufactured suggested thermo(probably 180* or 200 degree thermo).
Been there, done that, found out optionsI just replace the Thermostat in my 1995 S-10 Blazer with the same specs. When I went to get a new thermostat, I was told that Factory was 195 Degree F. But the GM Dealership said that non-standard thermostats that have been used are 165 Degrees and 185 Degrees. I had to replace mine because it was stuck open, which simply put means not heat in the winter and overheat in the summer. I replaced mine with a 195 Degree Thermostat, and it puts out a nice amount of heat now, and is running cooler when it is hot outside. The GM dealer said to try to have a cooler thermostat when you are in higher temperatures and/or when you are towing. My 195 Thermostat opens at about 170, but it appears that it only opens a little at that point, under load it will actually make it up to 195, then the temperature will drop. Please note, if you are towing or have a load that your transmission cooler is in the radiator on the drivers side, and if your transmission is heating up, your engine temp will not be reading correctly, it is possible for it to be up to 10 degrees higher from the heat from the transmission. So choose temperatures wisely. 195 is a standard thermostat. 4.3 Engine runs abt. 200 degrees
It depends on where the thermostat is: in a fridge, in a room, in a jacuzzi.It depends on where the thermostat is: in a fridge, in a room, in a jacuzzi.It depends on where the thermostat is: in a fridge, in a room, in a jacuzzi.It depends on where the thermostat is: in a fridge, in a room, in a jacuzzi.
Whatever degree the installed thermostat is. Typically 195 degrees if it has a 195 degree thermostat.
You would need to replace the thermostat in order to do this. Be aware that using a lower temp thermostat may affect your gas milage and/or performance. This vehicle is designed to run with a 195 degree thermostat.
Assuming you mean a 2001 Taurus, original equipment would be a 195 degree F thermostat.
Factory said to use a 195 degree thermostat
That engine requires a 195 degree thermostat in it.
Ensure you have the cooling system pressure flushed every two years and just as importantly replace the thermostat every year ( 194 degree )
A low-temperature thermostat will not prevent overheating so much as delay just a little bit. It will also cause poor fuel economy and with most electronically controlled FI systems, it will cause fuel control errors. If the engine is overheating with a properly functioning 190 degree thermostat, a 180 degree thermostat shouldn't make that much of a difference. Make sure the existing thermostat is working properly, make sure the radiator isn't blocked or partially blocked, and that the cooling fan and water pump are working. A computerized car needs to have the thermo specs call for. Changing the engine temp can alter the comp readings which can cause bad running, high fuel usage and costly repairs later on down the road.
