Does a 180 degree thermostat run engine at 195?
I was told today (by a very experience Jeep person), that if I use a 180 degree thermostat, that I can expect my engine to run at 195. And if I use a 195 thermostat (I have now), I can expect to the engine to run 205-215 always.
Is this correct? I thought that a 195 thermostat would run my engine at 195, that's why I put that in?
I've been trying like crazy to reduce my temp from 210-215 (fan shroud, timing, air bubbles, etc), but with no luck. If this is it, I'm gonna kick myself, or better yet, the thermostat manufacturers.
