    Default What Temp Does Your Car Run At?

    As above.

    Just curious as mine sits just over 1/2 way at around 91 / 92*c.

    2008, 1.8 VVT SRi.

    3.2 GSi (manual) typically holds to about 85 - Fans kick in if it points over straight up (90).

    Seems too high to me - it's at about 92 that the fans should kick in and bring the temperature down to about 80-85.

    Is that on idle?
    Is that on idle after a long run at high speed? (the temperature gauge rising)

    What settings do you use for the internal heating system?
    You may find it is lower if you run with the air conditioning on, and even lower with fan settings higher, and with higher settings heat

    My 1.8VVT runs straight up at 90 after about 3 miles and stays there.

    i had my thermostat replaced last year and i am given to understand from numerous threads that quite a lot of the 1.8 vvt's on this forum (including mine) sit at 92 or thereabouts
