How does it install? I have a Mazda that I replaced the t-stat on and it
kicked my butt!

On my Toyotas they lay flat...put the thing in and put the housing on and
bolt it. On the Mazda, it is Vertical. The T-Stat didn't grab the lip
machined into the housing and slipped. I had to re-open it, and HOLD the
t-stat in place while I put the housing back on.

Check this first, and also check you have the coolant mixed properly. Did
you 'flush' it when you replaced the t-stat?

on my toyota its easy to install had no probs there i mixed the
coolant 60/40 as i usually do and as for flow theres lots of flow i
ran it a day without a thermostat and circulation was great im
thinking it just may be a dud thermostat just becouse its new doesnt
mean its not faulty
