yea exactly. i have had to change the thermostat on my 96 many times. I bought a brand new radiator and hoses and all the works, but kept having sealing problems with my thermostat housing. I had to take out the thermostat so it could seal and wouldn't have any leaks. One day i will put a new housing in with the thermostat. Down here in san antonio texas it doesnt get very cold much often so i am kinda winging it.
just thought i would ramble on...
