Oil temp and coolant temps seem high?

Just picked up a insight and my coolant is runnin about 204-208 and oil temp is within 8 -10 the whole time cruising at 70. Those temps just seem high to me. Is this normal?

Your coolant does seem to be a little high if your empty. I normally see around 190 unless its hot outside and my driving like a teenager

I would start by testing your coolant... Or better yet upgrading to an elc coolant and change your thermostat

You can get testing kits just about anywhere auto parts are sold, but since its that new I would think your coolant is good. Have you checked your fan clutch? Also what year is your truck?

It's a 2005. I went ahead and bought a new thermostat today and more coolant. I did a flush when I did my egr delete and maybe I didn't get it clean enough. So I figured I'd change the stat and replace coolant again.

Fan clutch comes on when it gets about 215 I think. I heard it the other day.
