Re: 156 temp troubles
I agree with David C. You need a new thermostat and a new radiator. It should run at a pretty constant 85-90ºC and maybe rise to 95ºC before the fan kicks in.
Both are very common failures on the 156, and often the fail together.
I bet if you down the back of the radiator and at the bottom you will see that most of the fins have corroded and fallen out.
