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).
It may run cooler, but this depends on if your radiator fan has a thermostat controlled temperature gauge or if your fan is mechanical. A mechanical fan has a fan belt attached and runs when the engine runs.
A 180 and a 170 degree thermostat are listed for 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
Between 195 degrees and 210 degrees. You can put a 180 degree thermostat in it and it will run alittle cooler.
The 160 thermostat should open about 20 degrees sooner than a 180.
180 degree is stock but you could also go with 160 degree
Should be a 195
Should be 180 degrees, some work better with 160. The 180 will allow the vehicle to run cooler.
should be 180 degree thermostat.
A 160 in the summer time and a 180 during the winter.
180 degree in the summer time and 195 degree in the winter time.
factory thermostat should be a 180 degree stat.
No, should be 190
195 degree in winter time. 180 degree in the summer time.
What ever degree thermostat happens to be in there be it a 160, 180 or 195 degree t-stat.

Don't know what year you have but some sensors are temperature sensitive and you should run a 195 degree thermostat.
a 160 to 180 degree thermostat will work and any auto parts store should be able to get you one.
I noticed that www.motorcraft.com lists 3 different thermostats for the 1976 F-150 with 360 V8 ( a 160 degree / 180 degree / and 190 degree . I'm guessing that you installed the 160 ? and maybe had the 180 or 190 before That would make your guage read cooler
thermostat is stuck OPEN, never allowing coolant to warm up
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.
Yes it does affect the heat.the rating of the thermostat temp also affects temperature.example some cars use a 180 degree thermostat some 220 degree the latte will allow your vehicle to run at a hotter temp.
