Borrowed a temp gun from work, we use these to read electric motors, after driving back from work, I turned the heater full on and measured above the thermostat housing, I got 145*F on heater hose, upper radiator hose also about 143*. I figure the thermostats are gummed up, or have there's a bypass hole in the thermostat that won't allow the engine to get up to 180ish. Going to replace thermostat and flush the heater core this weekend, hopefully I'll be sweating thru winter after that.
