    Re: M117 - Correct thermostat and other cooling questions

    The spring steel wings on the top are simply to hold it into the upper housing for ease of installation. The angle at which you find them is of no consequence. You have confirmed what I suspected, which is that those are the same t-stats. And Gentlemen, who remembers when I said that new stats run hotter than used ones for quite a period of time (actually, mileage…) after installation?

    Oh, sorry, I forgot to tell you, the coolant gauge sensor is the one most forward in your photo. You can use 005 542 10 17 or 005 542 26 17. Same sensors, different vendors.

    Indeed, I can't get that chassis number to reference anywhere. From where on the vehicle are you seeing it?

    Re: M117 - Correct thermostat and other cooling questions

    emailed autohaus az about the issue with the stats...sent 4 emails now in 3 days and not one reply

    after sitting on hold for 45 min spoke to a rep who asked me to email them all the info and pics with my issues....explained i already sent emails to their email address on their site....he said send one to his personal email there and would email his address....never happened

    really not impressed with their lack of service

    You have the 2nd and 3rd digits backwards. It's WDB, not WBD. But WDB1260441A129918 still is no-go in the EPC.

    Got a photo of the VIN tag? I've heard of legitimate VIN's missing in the EPC in the past, but it's insanely rare.

    Regardless if the error was theirs, or their supplier, you DO NOT pay return shipping.

    Ridiculous.

    Re: M117 - Correct thermostat and other cooling questions

    I think 120 indicates 1.2 bar, 140 is 1.4 bar? If so, it's not an issue if you keep temps below ~115C.

    The 1.4 bar cap 124 500 04 06 replaces the 1.2 bar cap 124 500 01 06. And before that, a 1.0 bar cap was replaced with the 1.2 bar cap...

    Re: M117 - Correct thermostat and other cooling questions

    hey guys so i wanted to update this thread a bit

    recently was able to get the SEC back into the shop for work

    The SEL had trans rebuild so that was taking up expenses and time...but all went well with that

    Anyways so where we left off with the SEC, was plan to put in a New Nissen and new clutch, fresh coolant zerex with distilled water. My mechanic also did citric flush. We did not switch the stat that was in the car...now if u recall this stat was new when HI LINE in chicago did a motor rehaul ....Tony checked stat and appeared in good working order.

    So the car still runs at 100 C

    we are quite befuddled....I used my IR thermometer gun and pointed at the Stat housing, there it reads 90 C, so i assume inside 100C is accurate

    what to do now? Water pump is 2012.
    I suppose i could swap the "new stat" for another new one, and get the temp sending unit and then see...i dunno
