Temperature get high after short distance!

" 8 miles drive to get up to temp, " is not right , should be a lot sooner than that . Usually if thermostat is stuck open it takes that long to reach near operating temp .. Keep your eye on coolant level , coolant fan seems to be kicking in as normal . If you think it's not right , and losing coolant , thermostat may be worth changing .
