If that's centigrate it seems way high and if it's farenheight it seems too low.

BTW, what's the point of having an aftermarket guage if you're not even sure what's normal? Isn't the stock one more than sufficient?

#1 - I've asked you before in private, but I'm going to have to ask you again. Please use proper spelling and grammar.

#2 - what unit does your meter measure in? If you don't know, then why do you have the meter at all if you don't understand it?

#3 - Did you ever look in your owners manual? Perhaps the normal operating temperatures are recorded in that book. It has other useful information such as tire pressure, gas tank size, spark-plug recommendation, etc.

LaterZ!
Darren!!

Just an FYI, I see ranges from 170-195 degrees/f in my wagon. This is a pretty good rule of thumb for all motors with aluminum heads. If you see 220+ f, kiss your motor goodbye. That's the point where things begin to warp and bend.

On a side note my air intake temps went from 28f in normal driving to almost 45f during my commute (Port Mann bridge traffic). That explains why the car runs like POO until I get going again.

hehehe, I've been there before Billy.
For such a simple question, there are few simple answers.

FYI, this is coming from my UTEC, so I know it's correct for the WRX. It's also the same for other cars from Hondas to Humvees. And yes, I've worked on a Humvee before.

It's not so much a matter of being able to understand what you're trying to say so much as about how much it makes one's head hurt to read it.
