I got the bouncing temp guage problem that I've seen on here b4. From what I've read it's from the wrong thermostat having been put in (not by me). Now whats to be done to fix this? Just rip off the thermostat housing, replace with the proper thermostat and get a new gasket and put it back together? Will much coolant come out? And then is it just a matter of refilling the spilt coolant and going for a drive to get the air out of it?
Also is the EL housing a direct replacement - no mods to hoses or anything? And what are they worth?
And what exactly is the correct thermostat and what is the costs - around $30 I assume..

Drilling a hole in the thermostat is the only solution ive found, ive tried just about ever brand of thermostat and they all cause the temp gauge to fluctuate, the only one that didnt was a 77 degree one.
