Running Cold.

I know the 2.3 lima has a tendency to run pretty cool to begin with. My thermastat hasn't been changed for atleast 150k so I went ahead and replaced that and the housing since it was looking rough.

My reason for changing the thermastat is because it takes bloody forever for the damn thing to warm up and in turn warm me up. I figured it was a good idea to fix it before winter.

Well it seems my cooling system is now too good because I drove around last night for 30 min and it still didnt get completely into the proper operating range. It was only -11 last night, it regularly gets to -30 around here so I cant be freezing my *** off all the time.

Its a 195 degree thermastat.

What else do you guys suggest to get and keep the temps up?
