I pulled the plates off of the front of my engine to get a look at the clynders to check for debris and stuff that may restrict air flow. Everything looked great. One other thing I checked is the temperature of the engine mounted oil cooler. I had read one way to determine if your internal thermostat was working was to take a surface probe and check the outside temp of the cooler. I had the engine up to temp and the actual temp on the oil cooler was only 150 degrees. The oil temp was around 190 and the front cooler had already opened. I don't believe my internal thermostat is opening or the cooler would be hotter. I guess the next step is to pull it and check it out of the car.
Thanks for all of the feedback. I need to study up on my first partial drop.
