    Stuck open right after install

    Installed this 2 days ago because my thermostat housing was leaking. I immediately noticed my engine temp was much lower than it was with the $3 195 degree thermostat I had before. Haven't taken it back apart yet to verify, but it appears that it is already stuck open as my engine temp will never get above 150 degrees now and my heater blows just luke warm air. Sucks that I have to do it all over again for a part that I payed extra money for that does not work.

    Pros: Keeps from overheating

    Cons: After it is stuck open, you have no heat

    Not worth the time or effort installing this!

    I've had 3 of these fail in less than a year. The first two failed in the open position under normal operating temps, the third failed in the closed position alowing the temp to get extreamly hot and eventualy it failed in the open position.

    Pros: Fails in the open position

    Failed in one month!

    I would never recommend this product, unless you live in the desert and never expect to need the heater.

    Pros: Fails open

    Cons: Not able to allow for periods of excess heat like driving up to high elevations

    Failed in less than one year

    4 of 4 people found this helpful

    Purchased on 11/09/2013 and it failed in the open position by 9/5/2014; at least it broke open and not closed, went with OEM at double the cost but hopefully better.

    Pros: Failed in the open position

    Cons: Failed in 10 Months
