I got a 160 and on the highway it stays just above 130 and idle goes up a tad bit but takes a Lil for the heat to kick in =\

Re: Update

Yes it is to cold.
It is not getting up to the operating temperature needed by your ECU to take it out of cold run loop, plus if your oil isn't getting up to at least 180 degrees it is not lubricating properly and you will end up wiping out your bearings.
Your car will run better and probably use less fuel if you remove that 160 and put at least a 180 in it.

Well I think my issue with the fuel problem maybe my alternator. On start up I'm at like 10 volts

I guess it could be if the pump (electric?) is not getting enough voltage.
I'm surprised it will even start the car at 10 volts.
Make sure your engine grounds are good and fully charge the battery.
Low volts can ruin some engine electronics.
When an alternator is working properly it should put out around 14 volts for a short while after start up.

I'm going to get a volt meter tomorrow to get a more accurate reading and yes it is electric

Well I have narrowed it down to a electrical issue if that makes any sense. It's either the alternator or a loose connection some where and I think the starter maybe going. I drove it a couple days ago it started sputtering and jerking shut off. Tried to start it nothing not even a click. Pushed it about a half mile got back in it and it starts right back up. It did not want to keep running but I got it home. Any ideas?
