    sounds like a shot thermostat.......it should reach more than that..

    You could get the engine temp read with an infrared thermometer, that would then prove thermostat or temp sender..

    not unless they where both running continually... which they shouldn't do...that would point to a coolant control module fault, but i think you'd notice if the fans where running continually..
