180 tstat temp question
Ok, just replaced my stocker with a 180*. Its not an intense, so sue me! har har I did drill it, two smaller sized holes opposite from eachother. Put it in with new gasket, and filled 50/50 mix. Ran up to operating temp, noticed bleeder, bled for 5 sec, did not noticed any air bubbles, all coolant. The temp gauge still reads at 200*, sometimes a tick below.
My question is where on the gauge should the needle be? Like maybe 5 or 6 notches lower? I drove it for like 20min across town and it stayed where it was. its 67* outside so its not like its just hot. also, I have also noticed I dont think my fans ever kick on... what temp do they spin? Maybe the mysterious trapped air bubble is paying me a visit?
