1985/2 944 CoolingTemperature Gauge

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1985; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 206,000;

On the cooling temperature gauge the needle is almost on the red until the thermostat valve opens and lets the cooling fluid into the rad. I checked the thermostat in boiling water and it opened up at 180-190F. I replaced it with a new one - no change - the needle is still just under the red. There is no noise from the water pump when I squeeze the upper radiator hose while the engine is running at normal operating temperature. I feel a surge when I release the pressure.
