In terms of possible root causes for failure, the following scenarios are likely culprits for a cooling system to run too cool: A temperature sensor that's reporting lower-than-actual temperatures due to issues like drift/fouling/calibration. A sticking thermostat that is flowing more coolant than necessary to maintain 176 °F. Really cold ambient air ...

It sounds as though your A/C compressor is locked up. You can test it by trying to turn the A/C compressor by hand (without the engine running, of course). Remember, there are two portions to the front of the A/C compressor where it attaches to the engine. You have the clutch portion which is contained within the pulley (where the belt rides). Then you have ...

First, you could have lost hydraulic fluid in the system. Check the master cylinder reservoir to ensure there is enough fluid to actuate the clutch. If it is low here, you can try to fill it up to where it's ...

I would bet the issue is the temperature sending unit (the part on the car which reports the actual temp to the computer/gauge). These sensors work off of resistance. As the temperature gets higher, more resistance is introduced and less voltage gets through. The voltage is read by the computer and then knows the temperature based on a predetermined scale. ...
