i first noticed a problem about a week ago. i was coming home from vermont and it was @ 35deg.. when going through the mountains on long declines, 55mph roads, the temps was at the first notch about 5 times. the rest of the time the temp was between that and normal. when coming into small 30mph 3min. towns the temp would just about be normal, 1 notch below half. i have been trying to duplicate the problem for the last week. the problem is that by the time i get to an area that is 55mph constantly the car is at normal level then doesn't budge. it takes @ 10 min. of normal rural driving to warm up. btw. when i left vermont i was driving 45-55 right away after an hour of looking at @ motorcycle and an hour of driving up there. was i supposed to let the car warm up to operating temp before normal use?
