Default Oh, dear...well I don't feel too foolish...

beacuse whoever put in the LAST thermostat did the SAME THING!

Near as I can tell, the t-stat slipped and didn't quite line up as it
should have. The machined lip that was supposed to hold it wasn't as deep
as they usually are, so when I fitted the gasket and put the cover on, it
must have moved and opened up at the top.

THIS time, I gooped the gasket, put the t-stat in, put the gasket on with
the goop on it, held the whole mess with a fingertip and then seated the
housing. I held the housing in place and fitted the nuts.

After that, the car warmed up within 5 minutes, and stayed nice and warm.
Actually got a little TOO warm, but another burping and filling and then
topping off the bottle and the temp gauge stays at about 1/3 all the time.

Ah, well...that's what I get for not getting one from Mazda, I guess!

Oooh so it is and somebody has the cheek to write about an ungodly Mazda,
well it's just as well that we have you to lead us on the path of
righteousness, isn't it, we could have all gone to hell for reading these
non TOYOTA (All hail to TOYOTA) postings.
I tell you what, next time somebody posts infidel Mazda questions, why don't
you blow yourself up! (Ya dickhead!)

A Ricer; Noun;

A term used to describe idiots, predominantly in North America, who take
their cheap Japanese import cars, load them with body modifications, a new
exhaust, and maybe an air filter, and then think they can win any street
race because their car looks sleek.

Keep in mind, that no engine modification or any other type of performance
enhancing modification is included in the ricing process.

Usually used by other Ricers to try and insult people.

AFAICT, Nicholas, our wonky friend did all the clarifying and/or
implying that we needed. He has pretty well classified himself.

But, with the Brain Trust we have here, I figured it was worth a shot.

A t-stat is a t-stat, eh?
