Lower temp stat & fan sensor?
Anyone use a 180 stat coupled with a new fan coolant sensor (to work with the 180 stat)? I had a few Chevy 350's in my time and always benefited with lower temps. Now I know we are talking about two different animals, but wouldn't it help? I've read MANY posts regarding blown head gaskets, overheating, the whole "DexCool" issue, etc. I'm wondering if the computer would have to be reprogrammed. My car runs between 196-208. (Where's the damn degree symbol on my keyboard?!? )That temp seems to be the norm I guess. I changed out my coolant this weekend(PITA!!) I hate squeeze clamps! I was thinking of putting in a lower stat, but figured with my luck, it would be a nightmare. What do you all think? V.
