Running a little hot.

My 05 GT is running a little hotter than normal. This just started this afternoon when I was leaving work to come home. The gauge normally sits about the middle, but this afternoon it sat steadily at 3/4. I am at 6k miles since my last oil change, so I'm doing that tomorrow in hopes that is my issue. Would have checked the oil when I noticed it were it not for the cold... I dont mess with the cold anymore unless I have to. Anyway, what I'm wondering is if changing my oil doesn't do the trick what could be my issue? I should also mention my coolant/antifreeze is at a good level since I just dealt with that last week in preparation for our colder temps for coming for the next week. Any idea would be helpful.

Changing the thermostat is the most logical place to start. Also, make sure that the fan is coming on.

Boom, didn't even think of the fan and that is so simple.

Next question, what is the cfm for the stock fan? I can find the cfm measurement for a whole bunch of aftermarket ones, but I want a good idea of the expected improvement.

I have no idea about the cfm or even where you might find that info. I do know that the stock fan is perfectly adequate though, as long as it is working correctly...

Well, I didn't even look at the car for most of the weekend and when I got in this morning I noticed my temp gauge was off by about a quarter. Issue found and will be easily fixed.
