    118 cel is pretty normal for this car. The fan should come on if I gets a little hotter. Should turn on at 235 deg. Keep driving and keep an eye on it. Don't worry unless you see 255 deg w no fan.

    Normal if you are in a hot climate. Fan should come on at 235deg. If its not getting much hotter, your OK

    If you don't boil over and there is no check engine light then you are fine.

    Its not normal

    What is the level of coolant ??

    I have had the same problem before

    I had done three things to solve the issue

    - Changing the Radiater Cap
    - Lowering the coolant fluid level to be exactly at Minimum mark !!
    - bleeding the air from bleeder valve

    My temps went back to 100 - 104 C

    I went to delearship multiple times, they couldn’t identify why engine gauge is at 2/3 and engine coolant at 2/3 when in idle or in traffic

    I kept testing multiple things until I figure it out. I suspect coolant lvl is the reason.

    The bleeder valve is on top of the Thermostat

    Don’t open it. Just loose it with a screwdriver when the car is cold

    Make sure only water comes out thats when you know all the air inside your cooling system has been bleeded out.

    Keep your eyes on the reservoir , make sure it’s exactly at the Minimum level

    Let me know how your car temps after that.

    It IS normal. When you're not moving your not getting as much flow through the radiator as with just fans. Your also not purging the hot air out of the engine bay that is really well sealed as you would if you're moving. Running the engine at a higher rpm makes the water pump move more fluid, cool it down. The catalysts absorb and put out a LOT of heat. They are packed in there tightly as well. What many dont realize is a hotter engine is better for emissions....to a certain point with NOx. Fuel economy is better when running lean, and lean creates heat. These engines are known to run on the hot side. It is normal. Like the dude said, don't worry until you see steam, smell a lot of coolant, or the light pops on. Although, I can sell you a mod to install a 180*f t-stat if you want instead of our normal 205*f? All this I'm saying is about the 3.6/3.2l v6, I have no idea about the 2.4l.
