    1990 2.4l is 195 thermostat ok?

    hey im new here. had to replace the thermostat and the one i got from the part store is 195(i think) instead of 180. noticed the temp was higher than when the original was in it. the old one stuck open and during the time it was stuck open i noticed about a 10% decrease in my fuel mileage! now with the new stat my mileage is back to normal(about 29 m/g) but i don't want to cause problems with the higher temp. i should have made sure the new one was the same as the original but just assumed they would've given me oem part. what do you all think? thanks!!!

    195 is the original temperature thermostat,I also put a thermostat in my truck which is also a 1990 and i noticed the temp was slightly higher but it stayed in the normal temp range,I had no problem today and it was 81 degrees outside
