This has been my experience over and over even with the changes of  
thermostats. Someone said there were two thermostats for the car.  
Does someone have the part number of the warmer one? On the other  
hand, my car has not been overheating in the 95F Summer with the AC  
on in the city as it did when newer. I am willing to switch  
thermostats twice a year if that is the answer.
