Low Temperature

I drover car for a good 3 hours today and the temperature was really low. Mind you its 20 degrees outside and it hardly blow enough heat to make it warm. Ignore my ignorance here this is my first car with forces induction so I don't know of the inter cooler has anything to do with keeping the entire engine cold, or it just may be a thermo. Which I'm thinking it but since it's still under warranty I want to make sure and tell them what exactly it is before they tear my car apart.

The thermostat is probably bad then. The intercooler is for the supercharger, not the motor.
And ignorant questions are ok! If these guys can deal with me, they definitely will not have an issue with you

sounds like your thermostat has fallen apart, something is very much not right.

Thermostat.

If your check engine light comes on, soon, it's probably because of that.

Where is our thermostat? Pretty sure I have the same problem. Did a VW Vr6 tstat a few years ago. I hope it's easier than that was...

Topside? Does it require major surgery to access? Probs dumps coolant though right? Plan to flush/fill?

I remember seeing a write up, and it didn't look that bad. Leave the hoses connected, three bolts, and pull the stat.

Flush and fill is up to you.

Is the t-stat in the same place on the LSJ as it in the L61?
