That's how mine is as well and is perfect. Any more than that and my truck will puke it out. She's kind of particular like that.

To start with do you have gauges to see the difference in EOT-ECT max 15* this will tell you if you have a problem with the oil cooler. The new cold full mark is the old add mark are you puking any coolant out the degasing tank, have you ever flushed the coolant

It's alabout gauges to be able to tell the temps, you may have a t/stat problem may be a waterpump problem it's all about temp spread between the EOT-ECT the t/stat starts to open at 192.2* and is fully open at 219.2* so if you plan on keeping it better get this Edge Insight CTS Color Touch Screen Gauge Monitor or this
ScanGaugeII - Trip Computers + Digital Gauges + Scan Tool
You need to check cold every time.
