BonneMeMN is on a distinguished road

My car never gets above 200 even in slow city driving... I wonder why.... I don't see any weird tranny coolers etc. As far as I know I have the stock 195 Thermo. Infact i've never seen (or remembered) it above 200 since i bought it in june, eve in 90 degree heat.. And a bunch of fins are pushed back near the bottom of my rad too.

Once warmed up, mine hovers just above and below the 200 mark. The needle usually goes from just below the line when moving and just touching the hot side of the line when stopped.

Far as I know, I still have the 195 stat in it. Haven't looked to see, but noting else was mod'ed when I bought it.

Default 93 SSE overheat and what has worked

I have a 93 SSE Supercharged (145,000miles). Car over heats, three trips to the dealer and $1000 later and still no fix, even took out freeze plugs for a looky-lou. New radiator...

What I know; Lowering thermostat has helped, Adding a third fan to the front of radiator has helped (Derale 12" Tornado fan # 16512, set at 180 to 190), new water pump made it worse, the stamped impeller is not as good as the original cast impeller (I looking for a cast version and then maybe getting it machined) UNLESS ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO GET A HI FLOW ONE! Besides electric.

I ride this car hard, but do above and beyond in keeping it mint. Mint I tell you (sorry). I love this car and I have had Trans Am'* and Mustang GT'* (well I loved that mustang too). But, I use it to tow my SeaDoo XP in the AZ summer. The reason for my journey, grass hopper. Any more ideas for taming the heat output dragon.

I maybe way off base... I'm still learning about cars and all... But it sounds like the same problem I had when my thermastat went. Might be something to at least check. Besides if you are going to flush your system it would be a good time. To replace everything including sealent it was under $10. Hope I helped... Good Luck!
