Engine clicking, and question about Mr.Gasket thermostat being "race only"
So I need to get another thermostat for my jeep, as its running cold. I was going to get a Robert Shaw, but shipping from quadratec would take till next week. I can get a 195deg Mr.Gasket from autozone, but they are telling me its "race only"/"off-road only"? Can I use the Mr.Gasket, or should I just wait and order the Robert Shaw.
Also, today while trying to let my jeep warm-up the engine starting making a clicking noise. Jeep was just sitting in park, idling and making a fast click click click. It kinda sounded like it was coming from the middle of the engine bay. If I stepped on the gas it felt like the clicking went in unison with the reving. Like, faster clicking per rpm increase. I was inside the house when the jeep was warming up and I swore I heard a loud squeal... But I don't know if it was the jeep, or a car going by the house.
I've spent a few hours searching here and read mention of
I'm taking the jeep back to the shop tomorrow, as I'm about 99.9% positive it wasn't making this noise before. He's been a super cool guy to work with so far, so I hope this is something simple. Any input or things I can speak with the mechanic about would be great.
