After checking everything else, I replaced the switch with one : lower rated one ( also used on VW's $10.00). My car now hols a good : temperature no matter how long I sit in trafic. What temp was your original sensor set for and what lower temp did you pick to replace it with? My car runs hot too, so I have been thinking about a few things including, getting the radiator "rodded", replacing the radiator, adding in a manual bypass switch/relay, and installing a lower temp sensor, so your thoughts and experiences are appreciated!
