I own a 96 Z28. It has a 5.7 liter 350. Ever since I flushed out the cooling system and put in new Dexcool, the car runs at about 220-230. I put in a 160 degree thermo and flushed the system again. I even installed a third fan in front of the radiator, hooked them all up together with an adjustable thermostatic switch, and had the radiator taken apart and cleaned professionally. All the fans come on at the temp I choose and the temp stays at about 200. If I get on it a little or hit a light, it will start creeping up. I installed 4.10 gears, TPS enhancer, 34% underdrive pulleys, 3" exhaust, K&N cold air, and 2" drop. The car has 56,000 miles, its a 6-speed, no service engine light. The low coolant light comes on after a few minutes of driving. I took it the dealer and they said the coolant was full. New Radiator?? Help!
