I don't find a need to use it much. Also check for low levels of coolant, as this could very easily lead to engine overheating. With the car turned off the fan should not turn too easily especially when the vehicle is warm. Drove 60 mi pavement last 20 pretty steep then 18 more on dirt again much steeper, temp normal.

Just for kicks I flushed out the system and added a head gasket stop leak formula which cleared up the problem for several months, but now with the hot Summer months the elevated temperature guage has started again. The only thing I haven't done is a head gasket, because I'm not sure if I want to open that can of worms. Just for fun , remove the thermostat.
