Default 97 in shop....... now drivin the 93 today

Okay guys you probably remember me from the last time when i said those bad *** kids(yours or someone elses ) lol had stolen my car and got my Tv'*, amp,subwoofers,eq,stereo,dvd player and alarm atenna reciever(i dont know why they took this), not tomention they wrecked it. I put my 97 in the shop today to get all the body work repair so i had to jump in the old trusty 93.

My problem is that i had posted a topic saying that my temp wouldnt go past 130 degrees and it still doesnt now.Ive tryed to replace thet-stat a million times but still no luck when the car is warming up for about a good half hour it will reach 200degrees but when driving it goes down to the 120-130 mark. Voukd someone help!!

2 possibilities. Stuck thermostat, or bad ECT sensor. Moving to 92-99.

ECT. Engine Coolant Temp. It may be reading incorrectly. It tells the PCM and the gauge what the temp is.

Located under your throttle body, in the end of the lower intake manifold. One wire.

Default heat?

Are you getting good heat?
If so Will is right its probably just the temp sensor.
