Reply to "New motor, coolant temp creeps up between 195 & gets close to 230"

What's the problem, though?  If it's not squirting out water, and temps are in the 215* range, then you should be OK. 

If you have aluminum heads, they transfer heat faster than the cast block.  I wouldn't be surprised if they run a little hotter than the rest of the system, but what do I know, I have cast heads.

If you are squirting out water , then that's another problem, but that might be a euro filler neck with a USA cap.

 

Good luck =
