Re: Mech Tempurature Gauge Readings????
My Zuks temperature while driving is usually around 180. Now depending on how hot the air temperature is, lets say 110 in the shade, sitting still the coolant temp will rise to near 210. I can live with that. I don't know what the air temp was for you though.
210 degrees maybe higher than you would like it to be, but plain old water boils at 212 degrees. Lets not get into how elevation and atmospheric pressure changes this. With a 50/50 mix of coolant that number goes to about 223 degrees. Now when you add 15 psi of pressure from the cap you are near 268 degress.
Anyway, just my thoughts on this.
