      Not worth the money..

      I bought this for my 94 chevy suburban 2500 . . I used it for less than 2 weeks and it locked open after 1 warm day and then I had no heat when it cooled back down . . .I went back to an old regular thermostat and what a surprise . . I had heat again ! ! ! I wouldnt advise buying it . .

      Pros: none

      Cons: Thinks your truck overheated and locks. Then you have no heat..

      Failsafe Fail - Sticks open too easily

      2 of 2 people found this helpful

      In March, 2013 I replaced my thermostat with the Failsafe one pictured above. After just 9 or 10 months I got a check engine message saying that my thermostat had failed. After looking it up online to find the problem, I found than many people were having the issue of it just locking open for no reason, causing the need for constant replacements. In my case when this happened, my car hadn't even been overheating, I was simply driving down the street. Now I have to pay over a hundred dollars for the repair. I do not recommend buying this. Even the mechanic said it was a cheap quality part that he often sees stuck open in his shop.

      Pros: It did what it said it would, stuck open to prevent overheating

      Cons: stuck open without the vehicle even overheating, now needs replaced
