Jeep running cold, bad?
Hey all, so i did a search and couldn't find exactly what i was looking for;
my Jeep never seems to hit 210* which, according to Big Bad Bransford, is the optimal operating temp for the I-6. That said, i don't remember my running temp from the summer, other than it wasn't overheating, but now, with daily temps in the mid 20's and 30's, my Jeep runs at, what i figure to be, about 190*, which is 20* cooler than the "optimal" temperature.
i am assuming that my thermostat is to blame, for it is a '97 and i doubt the PO had to change one (and the Jeep is nearing her 100,000 mile birthday), so replacing it should fix the issue, correct?
i dont want to just go replacing random parts to see whats up, but this spring i plan on doing a radiator flush and possibly a high-flow thermostat housing (thanks Stu) WITH a new thermostat. is this the right way to go, or am i missing something? suggestions? thanks!
I am slowly, but surely fixing everything Jeep f'd up...
My super slow build:
