    Start with the spark plugs. Change them. Drain the fuel tank and put fresh fuel in it.

    Also check for any EFI codes while cranking it >> http://wotid.com/tls/content/view/54/60/

    Fans kick in at 220'F, 202 is still OK.
    There is a fan switch mod that you can do to switch the fans on as needed.

    Up to 225F is normal for the fans to turn on.

    The Engine isn't warm until 176F or so, it's going to normally run at maybe 180 ~ 186
