Tstat and Temp Question

95 with the 2.5 liter motor.

I replaced the water pump and tstat. The tstat looked like the original. It had the Chrysler emblem on it. Stamped on the tstat was 186 so I'm guessing it's a 186 degree tstat. I bought a new one from Autozone and their computer said to put in a 195 degree tstat.

When I'm driving the dash gauge pretty much reads 200-210. Do I have the right tstat in there?

Same thing here. They said 195% tstat, I put mine in and I read 210% all the time. Anyone know if this is normal?

195 is when the T-stat should open. The temp guage/sensor reads the temperature of the coolant at the sensor which I believe is located in the cylinder head. A difference in temp between what the t-stat is rated for and the guage is normal.

To answer your question...yes you have the correct t-stat

Hope this helped
