Re: warming up??
according to eLearn the stat starts to open at 82deg, so if you have a new rad that is working well I suppose it will probably sit around that temp, then being stationary going up to 90deg ... well if the car is stationary then no air is going through the rad so it will not be able to disapate the heat quick enough ...
So it sounds reasonable to me (I think) ... I've noticed that you have to get used to how the temp gauge works after you've changed something ... before changing my stat my gauge would read 70deg ... it was very worrying when it read 88deg afterwards!!!
