So I've noticed that my car has crappy heat. So lately I've been watching my temp gauge. When I'm driving (city or highway) the hottest it gets is 150. If I sit in the drive-thru at the bank I might get to 200. So I'm sure someones done their own thermostat, how bad is putting a new one in?

If it's a 160 or 180 I'd take it off your hands. PM me.

a broken one will give u 160 ~ but the engine is going to get hurt at that temp
