Thermostat Replacement 5.7
 
As I had mentioned in previous posts, I was getting a drip or two of coolant on my garage floor every couple of days. At first I thought it was the lower rad hose, but I then traced it to the upper rad hose coupling where it bolts to the water pump. The old thermostat gasket was on it's way out, cracking around the edges, and quite squished. New one looks much better.
If anyone else is experiencing a small leak, I would definitely check here first.
I have 41, 000 miles on the clock.
I replaced it with the stock Mopar 195, cost me $30.00, and took about 45 minutes to change, including draining off a gallon of coolant, and then replacing it.
