I need to replace my thermostat and cant find the one with the jiggle ball in it.

I have a 03 zx5 2.0 DOHC vin code 3.

I just replaced the t-stat housing with a new t-stat in it about 6 months ago. All of a sudden it began to o-heat sitting at a light yesterday.

I plan on doing the boiling water thing to see if installed
t-stat is stuck.

If all checks out then attention will turn to h2o pump. However it doesnt appear that I have lost coolant. The level is the same.

Anyone have a part number or is there even one available with the jiggle ball.
I prefer the 180 degree if possible.

Thanks in advance.

If you dont have a tune going to a lower thurmostat wont do you a lot of good , unplug your A/C to see if you then have heat at idle , when you turn on the heat your AC also comes on

a/c wasnt running at the time.

if the rubber pieces that attach to the radiator support are missing or broken will this cause the car to overheat.
they look like air guides or something like that. they run verticle between the rad. and rad support.
what correct term
