I just bought a honda del sol with a d15b a couple weeks ago. The tempeture gauge rarley moves up past the cold mark, when it is warmed up it usually sets right in the middle of it. It has a big aftermarket radiator, the weird thing about it is that the radiator cap often opens up to relieve the pressure. Anybody ever have this happen to them, is anything wrong? Thanks.

thermostat. either it's bad or not even there. my del sol came with no thermostat and i have z6/d15b mini-me. the car took forever to warm up like 10 min or so.. i changed mine with a new oem one, and it warms up like a charm.. i would change it and then check for any leaks like coolant, and oil.
