my civic had a similar problem when i drove it in the morning. i would start it and let it warm up for 15-20 min. then i would drive it about 3 city blocks and get on the highway. if i was really getting into it on the highway keeping the rpms up the temp would drop and i would barely get heat. after i would shift to 5th and stop for a coffee i wouldn't have the problem for the rest of the day. very strange but its just been to damn cold out to check into it. last night we got 16" of snow which really sucks because i just bought a 240sx and it a one wheel wonder in the snow so i can't go any where. well keep us posted if you figure out your problem... good luck.

Yea a cracked rad could be why. He could have fucked up the temperature gauge in the process. My Rex has a SRI and exhaust too. Again I drive in -45C and we have snowbanks 10-15ft high. They don't call it winterpeg for nothing! I'm sure the cold weather is contributing to the temp. drop, but the rad/temp. gauge is definetly fucked up. It shouldn't do that normally.
