does it go below after the engines warmed up?
the thermostat regulates the temperature, if the temperature never goes up when you have plenty of air passing through the radiator, then its stuck open,

if the temperature goes too high, even with lots of air through the radiator, then your thermostat MAY be stuck shut, or you might have other issues

sitting at 1/4 is normal, for mine atleast

Have you ever changed the thermostat? My car came with a 72 degree thermostat with two holes drilled through it :p

get a new one. they're not expensive. and if you can find a wreckers that actually has a 5ltr in the yard, tell me where it is! all the ones i know of sell the cars as a whole because there is always demand for conversions etc.
