The cobalt has a LCD readout that you can cycle through to see different things about the car - one of them is the coolant temperature value, in fahrenheit ; I'm assuming thats why there is no temp gauge on the car

cfg83 - I'll try to idle it to see when the fan kicks in, thanks for the info

guitarguy - thanks for the pointers about the grill block - I looked at all the pics of grill blocks here on the site; i'm going to try to make one that attaches to the bumper, right behind my grill....yeah I'm definitely not attaching anything to the radiator, haha
