94 gt running very hot

I have no mods just yet. But when im driving my car heats up really bad. Not like over heating... heating up... But like sittin by a fireplace type of heat. The heat that my car generates is crazy. I checked the radiator and over flow tank and they are both full of water. The radiator hoses are hot to the touch. I live in CA bay area and its rainy weather right now. My temp guage never goes even half way to normal. Whats the problem?

Mostly water. Should I flush it and fill with anti-freeze? How would I be able to tell if my thermostat wasnt working right without tearing it all apart?

I would say look at your water outlet gasket. It's where the upper radiator connects to the manifold. Mine was all old and hard replaced it and it reduced my temp. By a significant amount.

Flushing your radiator and lines could reveal a possible clog in your cooling system.

The upper radiator hose is never really hard. Probably need to replace that also

Use the factory recommended temperature thermostat.
You can get them in high flow models if needed or desired.

^ this ^

lots of people think that using a colder thermosat is better.but all it does is make it take longer for your vehicle to warm up.but once your enginge temp is past the thermostats rating it will just stay open letting the coolant continuous cycle through the radiator.
