Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
When accelerate the rpm fall and lose power.the engine is hot 180 F or more
180 is actually on the low side for a factory temperature setting. An aftermarket performance thermostat can be a 160 or 180 unit. 190-210 is a normal range, 260 is when you need to be concerned. Water/coolant in radiator being hot is normal! That's why you're not supposed to open the cap after the car has been running, wait till it cools off. Not sure on you're problem, more details?

Agree temp range is normally 190-210. The drop in power could be due to several things. I would check the fuel pressure possibly the fuel regulator has gone bad. Also fuel filter if you push the throttle and the engine reads that it's going to call for more air and fuel so if one is restricted in some way then you will starve on one and the engine will shut back. A vacuum leak will also cause this. Is your vehicle running a little rough at idle ? Also indicator of vacuum leak.
