The poor girl is running hot. Coolant levels are fine...could it be the thermostat (of course it could be...)? How can you tell if it's a thermostat problem?

What are the other common problems?

Thanks for your help.

See the other thread under GTVs. Causes of overheating are listed there.

To check a thermostat, remove it and put in a pot and heat it. When it gets to the spec stamped on the unit itself, check that it opens fully. Use a know good thermometer to check temp of water.

Also, make sure that it's installed with the correct orientation and the system bled to remove air pockets.
