just wondering from everyone how long it should take the engine to reach operating temperature on an average 50-60º degree day? Seems like the coolant temp needle barely goes above the 160º mark until ive been driving for like 10 minutes and it doesnt reach operating temp of like 180º until around 20 minutes of driving. could my thermostat be stuck open or something because most cars i have driven will warm up after about 5 minutes of driving. I also noticed that once i have been driving for a while, the coolant needle stays around the 175-180º mark. I just got this car recently so i am not sure if there is even a thermostat in there or what but i know these cars stock should reach 195º right?

Looks like a nice running engine with all normal.

yea this week has been very cold. much colder than last week. so its normal huh. guess im used to my truck which reaches 180º in like 5-6 minutes and stays there. only reason i ask is cause it takes the heater a long time to get warm when its very cold out.

sounds to me like you might have a lower stat in there vs stock. No idea on what mods have been done to the car?
