The stat was changed over a year ago -- so nothing really recent there. I noticed during the summer that coolant temps would be reported as 216-224F from wherever the sensor is located. The fan would kick-in at 220+, but never went higher than 224. Temps aren't close to that now -- 215 at the most, but 200 at cruise. Lowest ambient has been 15F with freezing rain. On a side note, big time ZR+ tonight -- accumulations up to an inch of ice!
