    confused Running Temperature 1.8 vvti SRi???

    Hi,

    Recently got a 1.8 SRi Vectra and have noticed it's normal temp when warmed up is 92-93 ish and was wondering if anyone elses runs at that temp? It is never any less than this when warm.

    It's had it's first service so all levels should be ok.

    Is 90-93 ok for normal running temp on the 1.8?

    Admin make a poll please

    The gauge is only a visual indicator (ie, it's not calibrated). Some read slightly lower than 90, some slightly over. As long as the cooling fan kicks in by 95 deg then it's fine.

    Mines smack bang in the centre of the dial when fully warmed up and sits there all day until you turn off the ignition.

    About right, compared with my non VVT.

    Mine will drop as low as 80-82, on steady cruise in colder weather though. Only to go up again when back on the gas.

    Mine old vvt ran at 95 (I checked with a thermocouple as I was concerned it was high and the guage is surprisingly accurate) but that broke at 33k so what does that mean? The new one I got out of an astra runs at a smidge over 90 though. Much better...

    My indicates more less the same. Interestingly, when in 'test mode' my computer shows 102-107*C

    BTW - What is wrong with 90-93*C sort of temperature?
