Its a setting in the truck... The CEL will trip if the truck doesn't warm up in a certain time frame. This is standard in the ECU and if the truck warms up in the set amount of time, your CEL will disappear.

Anyone have a pic of the thermostat housing opened up...I got the 4128 today and want to put it in with a "little" idea of what to do. I've swapped thermostats before, just want a little help

Hey also you are gonna need to put about an inch more coolant in the tank cause you are gonna flow more.

Heres a review I did on another forum.
http://www.**************/forums/sho...d.php?t=305529.

I ran my 180 stat all winter,it has been -37 degrees for almost 3 months off and on.
My truck has never thrown a code,but i use a Jet stat,which i know works the best.
The people who are throwing codes are probably Not using one.
Is there a differnce,well ask the people who keep getting codes.

If you tow or have hot weather the benifit is easy to see,with the reduced engine temperatures,and increase compression.

I do not use custom fan settings,but might once my tuner comes back.
I also tow with my truck daily,so I do notice a big difference in power with the 180 stat.
I would recommend this mod to anyone,regardless of how cold or hot it gets where you live.
Just check your evic numbers before and after you install it,and you will be amazed at the difference.

glad you are liking your t-stat and it is working out so well. no codes for me too.
I am confused on how it increases compression b/c that's not really possible. Compression or compression ratio is calculated from the cylinder volume ratio at bottom dead center vs volume at top dead center.

example: a cylinder that displaces 1000cc at BDC and then 100cc at TDC would have a 10:1 CR.

what exactly is the purpose of putting a 180 degree t-stat and is there any benefit in colder climates i live in fort mcmuray alberta?

I think its oil pressure,not cyclinder pressure.
The 180 stat helps with towing and engine wear,so yes you could use it in Fort mac,but probably not so much in the winter.
I did use mine this winter,although its a bit cooler up there.
