96 c4 runs hotter than I like

(Mabank tx)

If I get on my car it runs to 240 sometimes close to 250 with no ac on. How can I wire both fans to stay on every time I start the car. It’s at 160 k miles and Ithese temps worry me when it comes to the head gasket. I have all new anti freeze and thermostat and I purged the system well when I did all that. It’s on a 96 vette lt1

c4 running hot NEW
by: frank owen

I have a 1988 corvette c4. I had the same3 problem and I found setting a ideling it ran 250 degress,but when I drive it it cooled off to 210 degress and I found out the fan would cut off. if it still runs hot driving the check radiator make sure it not stopped up with leaves or road grime.
