Car only heats to 140 degrees or so unless sitting and idling. Heat is luke warm unless sitting and idling (increases with gauge appropriately). Radiator replaced, thermostat replaced with a 195 degree unit, new water pump as well. Heat diverter valve replaced, coolant system flushed. The good is the car will never overheat. the bad is I am freezing my butt off in the winter.
