    Have to replace the trermostat in my 88 Jimmy. I went to the local parts place and they had three diffrent temps 175, 185, and 195.
    My truck has a 350 v8 700R4 tranny and a towing package. It is stock and I run mostly the highway with it. Which should I choose and why? Are their any markings on the truck that say wich one to put in?
    Thanks for the help.

    Stock should be the 195. Stay stock because it's computer controled. Now on my 76 K5 with no computer, I'd run a 165.
