Does anyone know the temp range of the gauge? Since my work 2 weeks ago my temp doesn't much budge more then a 1/4 of the cold side of the temp gauge. Does anyone have a good guess what I am running at?

we could data log it and tell you exactly what it is but if its colder than normal
it probably just needs a thermostat.

do you have those electric fans that you put in running all the time?

My temp gauge usually reads straight up. The scanner says the engine is at 180. My primary fan relay doesn't kick in until I'm almost at redline (215?) so I've installed a set of auxiliary switches to manually pull in the primary and secondary fan relays. Only problem is, after I use the auxiliary switches my check engine light is on for a few days.

The stock fans sound about right. They don't come on until very late but when they do the needle should plumet to the half way mark again. It's scary to watch sitting in traffic, but that's how they were designed to work.

I'm assuming your light issue is because you ran the new fan off of a wire that's run threw a sensor. The switch interupts the signal being sent to the pcm which makes it angry.
