Also, if it needs to be replaced is that where you put in the 180 degree stat that everyone runs, and if so does it hurt your fuel mileage or anything?
won't be a problem at all. the earlier versions didn't have a plastic guard like the new ones do and i ended up breaking the sensor. you will slightly lose mileage with a 180 tstat...
