After my thermostat went about a month ago, the car seemed to be running fine until around a week ago where it would get up to normal temperature rather quickly, it wouldn't overheart (barely went over 90degrees) yet I could feel the heat outside the car, even though the gauge didn't show it.
Is it normal to get up to temperature after 6 minutes of driving in this weather (not warm or cold) changing gear at around 2k RPM?
I've also noticed I'm suffering from heatsoak alot more (I'm running an open cone induction kit) which I never used to have a problem with. My style of driving or length of trips haven't changed, it just doesn't seem normal!
Anyone shed any light?
