Well I went out and indeed tapped on the thermo housing... could not help myself.
Checked the radiator for level and went for a blast around the block. When you live in the sticks the block is either five miles or eight miles or twelve miles or more depending on where you go... I went the short route.
I stopped half way to let the engine idle (high) to see if the thing was gonna peg again or not. Nothin'...
Turned the heater and fan on and it is blowing hot air.
Drove back home and idled some more, holding right at 180-190, not sure which thermo is in there.
The heater is still blowing hot air and the gauge is holding steady.
So, what happened here...?
