Re: Engine Temps

I have a '92 Bravada with the 4.3W and it runs in the 210 range. Considering it has a 195* t/stat, add 10% error and it's very possible that a reading between 175 & 215 would be normal. The older (88-90) full size trucks usually run on the cool side if you go by the gage. I wouldn't worry about it. In the FWD cars, the cooling fan doesn't kick on until 230.
