Answers :

First thing I would suggest doing is using a hydrometer. This is a cheap gizmo that test quality of anifreeze. Make sure it is the correct antifreeze and the quality is good. Also, Use 10w30 oil and not 5w30. 5w30 is for the winter.
Also buy syntheic oil will help. It has a multi-viscosity instead of single. This means the oil will adjust to the temperature.
A coolant flush would also be a good idea. Usually reommended for 4 year maintenance intervals.
How are your coolant hoses? Are the spongy or hard? If so have them replaced.
Thermosat is obviously good.
