OE tstat is 190 I believe. The cooling system seems to get trapped bubbles when you mess with it and folks have to burp it a little to get them to clear. Even without the heater core it should maintain a temp right around 210. Flush is the best I can get you and make sure the stat was installed in the proper direction. Check your mech fan and clutch also.
