If it's the years with the thermo built into the housing, go to WalMart and buy a little box of BB's. Then stick one in there, bingo!

my stock thermo was a 100C(212F), i put the 180F thermo in my truck, i didnt seem to see any change. its probably because is summer time and i live in phoenix. the thermostat is probably open all the time.

The bb would hold open the thermostat, causing some coolant to be flowing through the engine all the time, making it run cooler. I dunno if I would try it though...I don't know what a bb would do to a water pump :think:
