Good job, saved you a couple hundred!
Is there anything special about the thermostat?
 
If it's a standard thermostat then Autozone, O'Reilly etc should be cheaper and much more convenient.


Nothing special. It is a standard thermostat that I remember from a car I had from the 70's. I did go to O'Reilly but the young man had attitude when I told him the problem. And the price was not much different than the dealer and would have taken longer to arrive.

Well done.  Glad that it was indeed "just" the thermostat.  Excellent picture, too.


Thanks. Used my smartphone and was hoping the picture will be useful for others in the future.

Thx for the info and pic.   

 

What are they using for sealant on this?  Is it a gasket?  I would guess it is sealant.

Actually it is a simple rubber gasket that you fit right over the thermostat. Then you put the two halves together and bolt them closed. Had to use a flat head screwdriver to remove the original rubber gasket. It was very easy to remove and install. Most time consuming step(s) was refilling the coolant to the correct level.
