Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
That's normal, that's on the high side but should drop soon as it get't that high, You can have the thermostat replaced with a lower rating but your going to have the colder running engine in the winter, Just keep an eye on the radiator fluid level and make sure the antifreeze is at a 50/50 mix (antifreeze/water). The higher the concentration of antifreeze the harder for the heat to transfer from the engine. Water is a great heat transfer but it boils over, that is why antifreeze is mixed. 100% antifreeze will gel when heated, causing poor circulation making the engine run hot, you can buy a 50/50 pre mixed antifreeze if your not in to mixing the two together and you can also buy a antifreeze meter to know what your mixture is at. Good luck and hope this helps. The other thing to is to make sure the radiator is clean and not full of dirt from the winter driving. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any question you may have.
