According to the owners manual for my 350 it says "if antifreeze additive is present in the correct concentration, the value displayed may rise to 120C under normal driving conditions. The coolant temperature may rise to the end of the temperature range at high outside temperatures and when you are driving on mountain roads."
Cooling modes (thermostat).
By Pass Mode – (thermostat closed) when coolant temperature <87 C
Mixed Mode - (thermostat partially open) when coolant temperature >87 C and <102 C
Cooling Mode - (thermostat fully open) when coolant temperature >102 C

car was stood for 2 hours and it was a 1 1/2 hour journey home.
Is checking/removing the thermostat a DIY job ?
I'd have thought even with the thermostat stuck open, the engine would have got warmer than that ????
