Normal operating temp?

Re: Normal operating temp?

I'm down in South Florida and I crossed a 170 degree Camaro T-stat and installed it in mine.

I run well below 200 in the summer heat and hold at about 178 on the few cold days as well. Trans temps are always really cool now as well.

If you go to the 170f t-stat you have to disable some codes in the ecm or the cel will come on when it gets cold out.

What's the normal operating temp for these vans? My "new to me last week" 2003 Astro seems to run just below "1/2" on th temp guage. Is that normal or is something up?

Thanks!


Coolant temp is one of the readings on my primary Ultragauge screen, and once my 03 Safari warms up, it's been running at 194.5 degF for the past month. The Ultragauge is IMHO a good instrument to have on board if you're the type of person who likes to monitor your vehicle's sensor readings.
