Coolant temp ?

Around town, my coolant never breaks 190.. Hangs around 187.. I just replace my t- stat when I did my flush 2 months ago.. That what everyone else is seeing? My oil hangs pretty close, nothing higher than 195.. Hope I got the right t stat is my only concern

If I'm puttering around town....mine will take awhile for it to rise to 190* but usually stays at 190* to 192*. 187* may be a tad low....but I don't think it's total cause for concern/alarm. The thermostats are set to start open around 190 with fully open around 212* I believe.

Mine usally hangs between 200 and 202 in this Texas summer 110*+ outdoor temp. During the winter when it was cooler I was closer to 192ish. It doesn't sound too low tom me, if the ambient temp isn't too high.
