well i just went for a ride in my car. i wanted to go for a test drive so i went on some back roads and hopped on the highway. Along the back roads the temp was at 180. I got on the highway it was at 180. I was on the highway for about 5 minutes. On the way home i saw the temp go up to 200. When i got to the road my house is on it was 225. I did 13 mph on my road. took me a couple minutes to pull into my driveway. it was still at 225. I got out of my car and popped the hood to check my fans. They were not on. I went to check the temp gauge and it was mid-way between 200-225. I let it idle for a couple minutes and it slowly went back to 200. I turned the car off and on again to see if the gauge would change and it didn't.
I just went out to check the coolant in the radiator and it is all the way up. but it does have black gunk in it. It still looks nice and green.
And i will be here all day tomorrow.
