OK thanks for all the input. Now ,,,,,,,,,,,,, someone post the link to the step by step "replace the thermostat" video. And while I'm here why when I look for the replacement online I find the thermostats by themselves and I also find the thermostat in the housing for about the same coin? Both are supposed to be OEM parts. mmmmmm I think there may be rats in my chicken noodle soup..
I just stopped in to see what condition my condition was in.
