Re: Temp Reading
Rechecked my Ti today, middle of gauge is 90deg, car runs normally just below this point, somewhere around 85 degrees. Driven quickly in runs at 90 degs and fan comes in at 100degs if stuck in traffic. If the temp. does not reach 80 degrees within 5 to 10 miles it is stuck open I'd agree you will need a new one. But it's strange you say that the temp gauge only gets to 80 degs and the fan cuts in traffic. Run the car to check the temperature the fan cuts in to establish if its reading low first.
