Hey there Ya'll. Has anyone blown a thermostat yet? I have a 93 Concord with the 3.5L. I lent the car to my bro the other day and It came back without heat! I was like what the f*#% did you do? Of course he didn't do it. It was quite easy to diagnose this one. I went to the local Crysler dealer and bought a new thremostat and a gasket.

The reason I am placing this little entry is becuase of the fact that I really did blow the thremostat. I went to remove it and wound up having to use vice grips and pulling with all my might. It turns out that the bottom of the thremostat broke off and the spring bent it right back so it jammed itself agains the inside of the coolant duct. I left a little bit of a scratch in there... hope it doesn't wreck the water pump with debris! DOH! I am going to take a pic of the thermo tonight and post for ya'll to see. HA HA! The joys of car ownership!

Take car ya'll :p
