Thanks for the info, guys. Have you heard of this being the culprit very
often when the T-stat is new. I put a new 87C T-stat in when I put the
motor in the car. that was this summer and the car has been very consistent
temp-wise. Which I consider a good thing....
Phil P mentioned an afterrun pump running when it's not suppsoed to. This
would make sense but my AR pump is unplugged due to a goof on my part. So
that isn't my issue....
