Engine Temp

My car runs at 192F that seems kind of high. Is that a normal temp?

Re: Engine Temp

normal. the t-stat opens @ 180. you gotta start worrying if it goes over 230.

Re: Engine Temp

That's what I would say EDUL. I know the first bar is at 140*F-ish. Not sure about the 2nd though.

normal. That's actually a really good working cooling system you have. Where did u tap into to keep an eye on the temp?
Electric or mechanical gauge?
