2000SilverBullet is on a distinguished road

But 1 little thing, I don't know if this is normal but my car it will go up to 180 on my temp gauge in my car, and like once it hits it it will go down to like 150 or lower, and then it will climb back up and do the same thing over. I was just wondering if anyone has any seg. Anyways my 6 bucks is well spent.
That doesn't sound normal.

Maybe the stat is sticking open then the coolant is overcooled, the stat then closes then the coolant heats back up, the stat opens and sticks again so the temp overshoots and drops to 150 before the valve finally decides to close.
Sounds like a lazy themostat.
Ya that $6 was well spent.
