My car has been running extremely cold according to the gauge. I have come to the conclusion that my Tsat needs to be replace. The part is cheap, it is the replacement that concerns me. Can I do this myself? I am not a mechanic, just an big fan of cars. How difficult is the process? I would like to do it over the weekend, do I need to put my car on a lift to get it done? The car is a Viggen.

Its not that hard to do and should only take an hour or so. I did it on my 1999 9-3. The worse part about it is the draining of tyhe colant. Either let it fall into a bucket or on the floor and top of with new.

For shame for shame.... never let it go to the floor.... it is very caustic to animals!! Don't want to hurt animals or kill the old earth. Plus I know where I live it is a $250 fine if you get caught letting it go to the ground. :shock:

No it is very simple job to do and you should have no problem with it. You can even go for the cooler stant at this point to help it stay a little cooler than it used to run also.

By floor, I was thinking of the grate we have in our garage that leads to the septic tank. I assumed he might also have the same garage type of setup
