Ok this is my wife's s-14 (95) stock and auto transmission.

I dove it for an hour yesterday Highway and surface roads and the temp gauge never climbed above the "C".

The cabin temp never really gets hot either. I checked the coolant level is full.

Could this be a bad thermostat? Or does it need a good flush? I've never had problems with 240's not getting hot,
It's always been too hot and blowing up radiators. :lol:

Thanks,

Is it cold or is it just saying it's cold? Meaning... are you getting good heat in the cabin?

Car running cold is usually low coolant (temp sensor reads cool because of air bubbles), or the thermostat is stuck open. Less likely, but common to 240s... the car is perfectly warm and the system full, but the temp sender has a loose connection. Some of them have the blade for the connector riveted on and it can come loose or the wire develops a break close to the connection due to vibration.

was laying in bed... couldn't sleep, and it came to me, I think this is it. It is pretty cold here in TN and my wife said right before Christmas she was driving home and the temp shot up, not to the red but much higher than normal. Then it started this whole not getting warm thing. I think it is stuck open and so the car is not warming up.

Because the temp in the cabin doesn't get warm either so that is why I don't think it is the sensor.

going to have to freeze my ass of, change the thermostat and get back to you!

(I knew Matt would have a pretty good idea)

Oh yeah it was the thermostat.

It was only 20 degrees when I left work so I knocked it out real quick.
