Default Thermostat

Temp gauge was acting pretty erratic so I replaced the t-stat. Pretty easy to get to on the 5.7, only problem was the lower spring clamp. Job took about an hour, half of that messin' with the lower clamp. Plan on changing to a screw clamp if you need to change yours. 43K miles, I believe this was the second replacement. I found a piece of the old one wedged between the water pump and the air pump. Good luck!
