Ok so this is where i stand........

Replaced water pump, replaced thermostat, replaced reservior cap(just in case). Filled through thermostat houseing with 50/50 till fill. Put everything back together. Finished filling through reservoir. Turned on car, heater on and let car idle for about 10-15 mins till fan came on and everything starting mixing. Put cap back on. Let car seat over night. Topped off via reservior put cap back on and went to work in car 20 min drive. Temp gauge stayed at 192f. Not bad at all. Before all this work it would climb to 196-198f .

Drove back home 3pm, 95 degrees. Temp was pretty good. 192-200 with ac full blast. I even let the car idle for 15 mins and it never went over 200f. I then shut ac off and let car idle for 10 mins. Temp went down to 92-94f and stayed there.

I beleive i have taken care of my issue. I will keep driving it around for the next few hot sunny days. Lets see how she does.
