Engine Operating Temperature?

Hey Guys,

Just picked up a edge insight, and was wondering what is normal operating temperature for our trucks? Also what is normal engine oil temperature, as well as the tranny temp? What should be difference between Engine Coolant temp, and engine oil temp?

Just trying to monitor my stuff as I had 6k worth of repairs past month (8 injectors, fuel pump, HPOP....)

Thanks guys for your help!!! This Forum is THE BEST!!!!!

Normal Water should be around 180-207*
Normal Oil should be kinda close but lower, i'd say 150's range, maybe even a little higher.
Transmission you don't want to get above 225*

oil temps should be lower than coolant temps? My oil temps are about 5 to 8 degrees warmer. Is that bad? If so, what could be problem, oil cooler?

Don't listen to Tyler, he is a moron.

Oil should be within about 10 degrees of your coolant under normal operating conditions.

Tranny, you want to start backing off around 200, don't let it get over 220.

I just think that after they replaced my HPOP my temperatures are bit higher... This is what i get on my edge insight (driving unloaded, 70 degrees outside temperature): Trans Temp: About 155-162.... Engine Oil Temperature: 195-205..... Engine Coolant Temperature anywhere from 187-202 degrees.... Are they within the spec?

Reason why I am asking is because they did my HPOP my Engine Coolant Temperature was always in the 180 range (180-187) never saw it higher.... I know they had to drain coolant and I guess remove intake manifold, but did they properly bled the coolant system out of the air, or if they broke something while they were in there....

Like I said before i just spend close to $6K into new injectors, HFCM, and HPOP, so I am being EXTRA careful now!!!

Any help is appreciated!!!!

Mine will run coolant temperatures from 170-215F depending on where I am and what I'm doing. It rarely gets over 200F... only when towing through the mountains in the summer.

Coolant temps fluctuate but oil temps should not exceed 14* greater than the coolant temps. If the oil temps are greater than the coolant temps at any coolant temp range then You need to be thinking about Your oil cooler and the imminant failure of same!
