Default RUNNING HOT!

Does anyone else that lives in a hot climate run this hot? Its 93* w/ 100* percent humidity. I run steady between 220 and 240 on the highway with air on or off in drive or OD.

All the time. I have a 180 therm and I am about to install a brand new radiator (old one has leaks). I think the best thing we can do is to install a high speed fan switch to turn on our cooling fans well before the car decides too.

don't even get me started about that!

I usually have to turn of my A/C on the way home from work while sitting in traffic and it'* 110 outside because I'm blowing past 240 and on my way to the RED.

WOW, now thats hot!! have you ever had your cooling system serviced? i was thinking about doing it. I've never done anything other then the usual radiator flush and refill from grease every coupla years.

Default Same Problem

I am experiencing the same problem. Although it only happened after I put in the 180 degree therm. I wonder if somehow that could make the temp gauge inaccurate? Those who've put a new themostat in, do you have this problem?
