What is your water temp?

Since getting my truck the water temp seems to stay at 185 degrees, unless I get on it. It will quickly move up to aruond 210 and then slowly go back to 185.

Should the average running temp be at 210? Do I have a bad thermostat?

I asked this question on here not long ago, seems since the weather has cooled off mine is running around the 180/185 mark unless its loaded. In the summer it would run at 210 but not now. The responses I got was that it seems to be a normal temp.

1 and a half marks below 210.....whatever that temp is.

Usually interstate runs in the dead of summer it's starts getting up close to 210 or at 210. It has never been higher than this since new.

Thanks. Most all vehicles I've owned have the normal water temp in the middle. At least that's one worry I can cross off my list.

Mine started running too cool as well and I replaced both thermostats and my temp is back up to where it use to be which is just below the 210.
