    I'm lost as to why you'd lift up your car to change the thermostat?

    Have you ever tried to drain antifreeze on one of these cars? Stock height its a pain, imagine 2.5" lower. Let alone, why sit there and have to bend over the whole time your working, when you can bring the car up to your level.

    Work smarter, not harder. I would rather spend the 3 minutes jacking up my car, and supporting with jack stands, than have a soar back afterwards from arching it.

    Valid point. I didn't have to drain my anti-freeze last time only because I sprayed it all over the parking lot when it overheated hahaha
    That's when I found out my thermostat was sticking.

    Lol no bueno!

    I changed mine because I didn't like what was in it. Car wasn't cool enough, and would sit about half way, even on the interstate. So I changed it to a 180*.

    195* is stock. I am not sure if mine was 195 or not, since I got the car from Wisconsin.

    I replaced whatever it was and bought a new 195.
