View Full Version : LQ-9 Thermostat

08-20-2011, 12:09 PM
Has anyone changed the thermostat in their LQ-9. A recent inquiry with the dealer tells me that you cant just buy the thermostat alone from the dealer. You have to buy the new and improved housing and thermostat together and it aint cheap. So if anyone knows of a good substitute for just the 160 degree T-stat for the LQ-9, I'm looking for suggestions.

Scroll down about half way.

If they made a change then you should follow their instructions they probably came out with a bulletin and for a reason, if you don't wanna do it, then take it out and match it up at the auto parts store. Most part stores will give you a deer in the headlight look if you tell them its for a boat so you would need to reference a car model. I would suggest to do what the dealer says to do even if its $300.
