Default Re: thermostat not opening? Even with new one?

You haven't asked but I will suggest this anyways. Unless you are totally broke and have no other choice I would not use any of the radiator leak repair additives. they will eventually gum stuff up. You don't want to have to replace the heater core . it is a 8 hour hard project. You have the 5 speed so no tranny lines to the raditor. the radiator swap would be a 30 minute project

i agree and this seems to be one of the easiest vehicles ive had to swap the radiator on and ive done them on 4.0 explorers before so its no big deal. I found a radiator on ebay with lifetime warranty for just under $100 dollars. I think that may be the route ill take.
