Question about 1997 Suzuki Sidekick
Car does not get beyond lukewarm. dash gauge sits close to c. had thermostat replaced last year. currently have a piece of card board in front of the radiator - if not the car would be an icebox.
The most likely cause is the thermostat stuck in the fully open position which allows maximum coolant flow between the engine and radiator in very cold conditions. In such such conditions the coolant temperature will not increase to optimum and will run cold constantly.
You will need to have the thermostat removed and inspected. It is an inexpensive item and I would replace it with a new one.
