"overheating" or no?
Well I jsut replaced the hg's around 1k ago. it used to run around 160-185(On autometer gauge) well today on my way home(about 45 mins, 20 interstate) the car would get up to about 205-233(highest right when i got off the on ramp/had to stop) It has a 195* thermostat(failsafe)
How safe is it to drive the car? is this normal? We have had some below 40* temps and its now right around 55 so could be the "warmer" temps be causing this rise in temperature? There are no air pockets in the cooling system. I didnt replace the water pump, but could this be the problem its been fine since ive got the car. And the car isnt running bad so i dont think teh hg's are going out. If i let teh car idle...it will stay around 205*...so am i safely guessing its the waterpump since at a higher RPM its getting warmer?
