Should I just stay stock on the new thermo, it's 187. I was told not to go colder due to PCM compatibility issues and that it runs cooler and takes longer to warm up in the winter.

I know a guy not far from you in Sandwich. Good friend of mine actually. He's reasonable with labor and knows what he's doing

didnt you say in the chat box yesterday that the dealer was only going to charge like $200 or so for all that work?

for someone to do this as a side job, your not going to find much lower than that.

+ parts and fluids.

it was discussed in the chat box. its right for the v6, not the v8.

but quoted price is quoted price. get them to say they wont charge you more than that and get it done.

It is high. Not my fault 3 different shops quoted me $180, $184.50, and $195 at hour and a half labor and they are aware it's a 6.0 not a V6.

I'm not made of money, so obviously I'm going to go to someone trying to help me out because I'm in a jam, not make profit off me. Shop prices overcharge to pay there employees, electricity, shop supplies, parts, markup, etc.

That's the point of asking someone to do the job separate from a shop, cuz they don't charge shop prices. And for the record this is not the first time you quoted me higher than most.

Water pump calls for 1.8 and thermostat calls for .8. If the dealer quoted you $185 bucks, they fucked up big time. Get it done and sign and pay the bill before they get started.

2.6 hours and a coolant service at my shop is $277.35 and my labor is $99 an hour, dealer is usually $120+/hr

EDIT!!! Going thru the procedure on mitchell you could technically say thermostat is overlap since its part of the water pump. so Id be at 1.8 hours total and some coolant. = $199

although i understand where youre coming from, i would not drive to my shop, rack your car, do whatever needs to be done(2 hours atleast) for any less than what i quoted. yeah i got expenses and such, but ive been MORE THAN FAIR with pricing on jobs for the past 5 and half years ive been doing this full time, and many here can attest to that.

go get the job done for 184, and dont look back, thats a great price, i would not do it for that amount especially when using customer supplied parts. because believe it or not, there is a good chunk that i loose out on when doing stuff like that. im not saying all the time, but now, most of the time i wont use customer supplied parts due to fitment issues, crappy Chinese bullshit, and failures.

my parts + my labor, if you have a problem, bring it back, no problem.
your parts + my labor, see ya later, problem is on you.

If you found a legit reputable place that would do that work for $184, and you're looking for cheaper, you're nuts OP..... You must be on a Ramen Noodle diet.

Stock thermostat goes along with the PCM settings. So stick with stock.

For the coolant flush and fill make sure to use a Uview Air lift air evacuator to bleed the cooling system of air pockets.
