So on my way home from town tonight I glance up at my OHC and note it says 83*F. I glance back out the window at the snow on the ground that is definitely far from melting. Glance back up at the OHC... nope... not crazy. It says 83*F.
Just great. So either my engine is running way too hot, my OHC is malfunctioning or the temp sensor is shot. Engine didn't seem abnormally warm to the hand when I got home (my thermostat on the gauge cluster doesn't work), so I suspect a problem with the OHC.
Just great. I'll have to make a point to watch the temperature tomorrow as I head into work.
