Sweeeeeeeet. We'll try and coordinate with the events already on the calendar and the ball games. Sure we can figure something out.Hey guys,
The wife has given her blessing. The only thing now we have to wait for is the kids baseball game schedule. Should be out next week. Stay tuned...
Mine gets fairly hot in that weather in that traffic. I've seen 221 but not higher. Above 225 and I'd be worried something was amiss. I believe we have a 190 degree t-stat meaning it only starts to open at 190 degrees.110 degrees in Riverside Saturday.
Car ran 216 219 then 221 degrees. hotest point was on the 91 freeway at 15 mph.
That seems too high.
Is this normal?
All this is correct too. High heat plus sitting is nearly stopped traffic is going to send your temps up but you could also have an air bubble in the system. that is easy enough to fix though and something I can show you how to do at the ModDay. A bigger issue is how the air got in there. IF your coolant in the overflow tank isn't at the proper level, air can be introduced there into the system. If it is at the right level, then it could be the water pump leak issue.I would think once the temp gets to the 220's, shut off. Mine has gotten to the 210's in high heat but usually it's also because of elevation. Could be a few things. Sticky thermostat, air bubble in system(very typical in our cars).
Don't have a date set yet...looks like knysna99 will be hosting and he's going to get us some possible dates when his kids' game schedule comes out later this week.Been gone a bit. When's Mod Day Robo?
I usually ran cooler t-stats and had my fans turn on sooner in my Grand Prix so I don't know what's "Normal" when the weather gets hot with these cars. Hence why I get concerned when I hit over 225. Good to know that is still within operating temps for our cars.I know some of the experts are going to cringe at this, but my dealership lead, was a Saturn lead in the day. He gave me some paper work explaining the temperature and when and what happened. I never read it, it is buried some where at the shop. will try to find. But he stated that 220 is where the fan comes on, nothing to concern yourself about. If it is hot outside the car will run hotter (duh). I was very concerned about it, and mine runs a little warmer than I would like, right at 200 I would guess. But my dually maintains 210 and is not even at the halfway mark on the gauge which goes to about 260 I believe before it would be in the red.
These cars set low, bring in air through the front and from underneath, setting on a hot black top road is going to make the temperature rise for sure. And we had some of the hottest days of the year last couple of weeks. I think your good Razz.
