    My friend just replaced the thermostat in his 95 jeep wrangle w/ 4 cyl. When he put things back together the voltmeter in the jeep reads 15 v instead of the 14 v it used to. Is this anything to worry about?

    Doesn't sound like it's related, but double check all your electrical connections around the area you were working. Make sure nothing got unplugged, or partially unplugged. Also check the battery terminals for corrosion, or loose connections.

    Good Luck!

    a 95 wrangler has an automatic tensioner,being to tight wouldnt affect voltage anyway.I notice all my trucks,the voltmeter reads higher when the engines cold,then as it warms up they come down to 14 volts,but for a few minutes the meter will read 15+
