so i had a few problems around july/ june months where the temps spiked around 95-100. the problem i was having was my temp would run a little bit hotter than usual, not overheating but a little bit hotter. didnt have ths problem last year, but it started when the hot weather came. i had a new bumpr put on that replaced the steel shroud with a steel one, not really cuttin off much of the air flow to the engine, but it would run about a third of the way from the middle toward the hot mark on my gauge. and go down when i got above 50 or so. but its never done this so im a tad worried. i do have the dreaded coolant leak from the timing chain cover. but i dunno if that has anything to do with it. i got the 3.0 and i havent heard of this problem ith it, i imagine it cant be a good thing for the motor
