Simple question Econoline Van, What Tstat to use.

I have a Ford Econoline Super, 1995 with the 4.9l gas engine. I recently purchased this van and I'm replacing hoses, belts,etc. I want to replace the water pump and thermostat while I'm in there and I'm not sure what temperature is stock. Auto supply store shows 160,180,195 degrees available. I know the computer will get angry if I install the wrong temp. lol I'm in New Jersey moving to Florida(Hotter) but not sure if that would make a difference! Thanks!

If you're moving south, you can install a 180F and shouldn't have any problems. The difference is that slogging down the highway the engine will run a bit cooler, but around town, especially running A/C and other power accessories it'll stay upwards of 195F.

I had a 180F installed in my Durango to keep temps in check when towing, but come winter, I had to reinstall the 195F as the cabin wouldn't get above freezing here in Ontario!
