This is more of a comment than a question regarding thermostat replacement. I found it much easier to just purchase a thermostat wrench, it has specific bends and curves in it so that you do not have to remove the exhaust manifold. I am here to tell you it is worth the money, just in the hassle and headaches alone it saves you. Word from the wise to the wise, buy the thermostat wrench!

Thanks for the tip. This is good for the do it yourself guys.

We as techs stopped removing the crossover pipe years ago and either made our own wrench or took the extra time to use a standard wrench for the removal.
