Always nice to have multiple inputs.I have ScanGauge2 but I always drive alone. If I'll have the chance, I'll let my wife to take a record of it. The thing is, I don't know exactly when I'll have that chance. Another thing, I am somehow forgetful of these things but I replied here hoping what I type will help me remember it so I can make a good estimate.
Thanks man. Your temp/time isn't that much different from mine, although it reaches that temp a little quicker for me.I went out and logged with my Accessport and forgot that I didn’t have coolant temp in my logging parameters, so I can’t give second-by-second coolant temps. I’m sorry.
However I can say that it reached 180°F/82°C in about 5 min with gentle driving. If you need more detail I can do it again tomorrow and log the coolant temps.
Here’s the upper radiator hose.

I was worried that it was too fast with mine.
The hose also looks similar to mine, but to verify: Do you see a "dip" around that curved part of the hose?
Meaning that the outlet on the engine is slightly higher than the lowest part of the rad hose?
The more and more I think about it, and drive the car, the more I think the whole issue is coolant-level related.
