A thermostat is a cheap first try -- in another thread you say you're gonna replace that. But if it's the original radiator, I'm betting that won't fix the overheating problem. I went through similar stuff 6 months ago.... tried new thermostats, several flushes with stronger and stronger chemicals, etc. Eventually put in a new radiator and the temp gauge settles on halfway and never moves now.
I never got it heated up to the red zone. That's "blown head gasket" territory! Keep an eye on other symptoms, like white exhaust or frothy oil, or bubbles in the radiator.

Hey bud...just curious, why didn't you buy a lower degree temp thermostat? Isn't it better to have a lower temp thermostat for top engine performance? Or am I way off on this one? Or, does the fact that you live in a winter wonderland have anything to do with the 180 degree?
