What is the original temperature thermostat setting for a 1995 Chevy S10 with 2.2l?
195 degrees F
Why does the water in your 1994 Chevy pickup only go up to 130 degrees when you have a 195 degree thermostat in it?
It's dependant on what you want. If you live in a hotter climate, select a lower temperature thermostat; that causes the thermostat to open sooner, keeping the engine a little cooler... hopefully. If you live in a climate that is either normally cooler or seasonably cooler, a hotter thermostat can help the heater work better. A hotter thermostat has been demonstrated to be SLIGHTLY (almost insignificantly) at helping the engine run more efficietly.
