does this make sense?
also the heater has barely even been warm.. feels more like ya got a cigarette lighter heating the car.. really.. but when the temp gauge went up, the heater got hotter..
at first i was thinkin the heater sucking like that might be a plugged heater core.. but now i'm not sure...
anyone got any ideas? i'm going to swap the thermostat tomorrow for sure...

i was thinkin about it, by revving the engine it would force more flow through a stuck thermostat would it not?
btw engine was resealed, timing belts, water pump, oil pump, the hole shebang done about 13k ago.. last year...

i replaced the water pump about 6K ago...the last one seized and left me stranded - swapped for an OEM unit. thermostat i dont think i ever replaced, may want to start there?

i swapped out the thermostat this morning, the old one looked like it was growing moss:cornfuzz: but anyways, put a 180 in there and she runs below the half mark now.. and i don't need the electric fan runnin all the time.. i'm gonna put it on a toggle switch so i can use it on-demand..
