Yeah the radi has plastic tanks. Ive been running it without a thermostat for two years now and it has gotten to the "mid way" inbetween cold and operating temperature MAYBE two or three times during normal driving. If im sitting in downtown fort worth in heavy traffic for half and hour or so it gets closer to operating temp and starts to leak. It spends all of its time 1 or 2 notches above "C". Except in the winter when I drive on the highway, then its hard to get it above "C".
