My 94 is running at a steady 215-230, no matter how I drive it. The water pump has been changed once before, it has a slight coolant leak too. Does anyone have this happening to their 2.0 engine ? Is there a cure (thermostat or reservoir swap) ? Any thoughts ? Thanks.

Yeah, nice ride. Just threw some new rims and tires for my 94 and it made a world of difference. Regarding your temp problem, it sounds like a screwed up sensor more than anything. I'm finally dropping the housing and thermostat tonight.
