Ever since the weather started getting cold, I’ve noticed that Scoot Scoot is not getting up to full operating temperature (210 degrees) this morning when I did my commute into work, I put my generic scan tool on to see if what I was seeing on the dash was what the ECMwas seeing. The picture I have is AFTER a 20 minute drive at highway speeds (30-55 MPH) and parking in the parking lot at my work. The temperature never exceeded 150 degrees and the heat was adequate, but not the usual “cooking like an oven” heat. I have a feeling my replacement thermostat is stuck open and is over cooling the engine. But the big question is, should I try my luck at another $90 thermostat, or should i just say screw it and have my local GM dealer order the complete thermostat and housing assembly at an eye watering $350?
