Re: Renix Cooling Tips

It did sound like the TFS was dead on yours, and the relay is OK.

5-90 and I have run 180 F T-stats on ours for years on 87-90 models.

The 195 F T-stat is recomended on the newer XJs, especially 96, OBD-II and newer, as the the PCMs are anal about the CTS reaching a certain temp to go closed loop on the O2 sensor fuel injection operation, while the Renix (87-90) will go closed loop at room temperature.
