Question about Cars & Trucks
1. Changed out thermostat thought it was stuck open ( new one same problem). At idle Kinds worms up to @ 130 F. With a/c on a hot day gets up to 190 f. so good gauge works, never runs hot or over 190. 2. On a cold day worms up to @ 110 f. at idle; BUT! when you start driving temperature drops down to ? BOTTOM MARK on gauge. Stop at idle for 5 to 10 min and temp comes up to @ 130f. And heater starts to get kinda warn again. Heater never gets real Hot even when on Hot day with 190 F. water temp but does get REAL WARM BUT NOT REAL HOT LIKE IT SHOULD. It's like it has a thermostat temp BYPASS for NEED of warm Heater air. Heater Core circulates all the time the same. ( I did do a flush out on H/C seemed like a good flow with just gravity flow pleasure only). Put a water plastic drinking water bottle on and squeezed it and it squirts out ok bough direction.
