Re: [DML] Thermostat



Videobob,

When I replaced mine a few weeks ago I had bought it from one of the 
vendors.  The only problem I noticed was that the sealing gasket that was 
sent was just an O-Ring that didn't make the right seal in the housing.  I 
had to go to Advance Auto and they were able to find one that worked 
perfectly, it has to wrap around the whole lip of the thermostat perimeter, 
not just sit on top like an O-Ring would.  According to the package it came 
in, it is for a 1988-95 Mazda (V6, 3 Litre, SOHC Engine).  There is no need 
for sealing compound, just the right gasket.  As far as the thermostat 
itself goes, I don't know of a 100% valid cross-reference, although I would 
start with a Stant # 13649 (For 1981 Volvo 260).  It should begin to open at 
87C (~190F), and should be fully open at 100C (212F).

Hope this helps,
Todd Nelson
