won't warm up!!!

Well my temp. gause only goes about 3/8 way up and takes a lot longer to get to even that. Used to ride about 1/2. I'm thinking thermostat stuck open, any other opinions? How likely is it that the temp. gauge may not be working correctly, all gauges are OEM in the dash.

had a similar problem with mine years ago, replace the stat and the engine warmed up better. i would personally go with whatever is stock.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

heater doesn't really blow hot unless on the interstate and running about 2,000 rpm for a bit...guess I'll be putting in a thermostat.
