So my issue was this: My temp gauge never went up much further than JUST out of the blue region... This affected my climate control (I get a lukewarm at best blowing when the heat is on... ), my engine performance, and generally, it just pisses me off to not see this needle right in the middle.
I just got my car back from the stealer, and this was one of the things I was having done... Also, oxygen sensor (I stripped it trying to get it out, so I took it in).
I also replaced the water pump, as I figured why not, especially while they're in there anyway...
LONG STORY SHORT - Gauge still reads barely out of blue, and not much heat either...
Anybody help me out here??
"DUDE, what are we celebrating!!!!????"
