i have been driving it for the passed 2 days now. the car runs like it did before the coolant leaked out. the only thing is that the temp gauge is at 215 or 220* then the fan cuts on and then go to 200* or below. THen it heat up again to about 215-220* and repeats the same process. How do I get the temp to stay at a lower temp? I need to try to keep this car cool from now on. I am not trying to be funny but I do need some break it down instructions so i can get the job right!

You may want to invest in a manual fan switch or move to a cooler climate

thats why i keep mine hooked up for now till i get some gauges but even then i will proably keep it there
