I got a thermoswitch (dunno what brand, but it plugs into the unused hole in my thermostat) out of an EA hooked it up and let my car run till it got hot. But the thing is the fan turned on way to early, UNder the normal arc, and it stays on, and my car runs too cool with the thermoswitch on. Do i have to buy a whole new thermo switch or can i get something for it? what are my options? thanks guys

You should just be abe to add a resistor into it if you know what youre doing. I dont :P


Or you could run wires inside and have an adjustable one, and have it errr.... adjustable. Or you could dangle the adjustable one near the thermostat, or better yet, dangle it nearby till you get it set right, then using a multimeter, check the resistance, and then replace it with a suitable resistor
