2006 Pontiac Solstice Q&A

2006 Pontiac Solstice Question: Temp ran up to 210 degrees Put in new 185 thermostat temp still reads 200 why?

I knew to burp trapped air from motor. What else can be done could it be a bad sensor? -
Answer 1
Is the cooling fan (radiator) coming on by 215F? If so , what's the problem? Normal operating temp is over 200F. Putting the wrong (to cold) thermostat in will create other problems. -
Comment 1

Answer 2
the computor sensors need 200 deg to function properly thats the design -
