    I'm trying to get the thermostat to open in order to diagnose a possible leak. I hit a damn deer last night. I'm under the impression It won't open until 200° or so. I can't get the temperature above 190. What should I do?

    Sup everyone. Realized I've been doing harm to the TSI for the last month with the GM coolant. To be innocent, I purchased this 2012 CC from a family Ford dealer. They claimed they did an oil change and checked all systems. Fortunately, I don't trust dealers and did my own oil change. This...
