Fixed ! After changing CTS on Saturday and a momentary distraction by a phone call I noted the temp gauge was reading 233 and concern for the motor was high. As I reached for the keys to once again shut down engine to prevent damage I hear the fans running and the motor has gone into cool down. Afterwards I allowed it to reach that temp again with fingers crossed hoping for same results and was not disappointed. Not exactly sure what fixed the problem, either the new CTS or the distraction or maybe the temp gauge switch has an incorrect resistance that caused the temp reading to be high on digital indicator, I just do not know. I may change gauge switch in the future or just not tempt fate and leave it all alone knowing that the CTS is now doing its job.
