normal engine operating temp?

Recommended Posts

MY 2001 temp runs between 195 and 205 degrees. I changed thermostat, took radiator out flushed it and cleaned it and degreased it. Thought it might be running warm cause of blowbye blowing on radiator. Radiator schrouds were in good shape so im open to any suggestions. Thanks

I don't know what to say. My 01.5 runs on the thermostat... running light, it's a needle width under 195. Moderately working, it runs up a needle width or 2 above 195 mark. It will climb on uphills & come down, downhill. I don't know what the tollerance is.Russ

Depending on how you use it this is pretty close to spot on... still have you checked the coolant concentrations? Too weak or too strong? Fresh? Oil? Right stuff & enough of it in all the right places?MPG? Excessive friction is an old school cause of excess heat.
