Asked by May 03, 2017 at 03:23 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My temp runs at 220 but when in traffic goes to 230 is this normal

1 Answer


230 is a bit high. I would do a full cooling system service and use Redline Water Wetter which should reduce your operating temperature noticeably. It it were my car I would install a heavy duty radiator if that is what it took to lower the temp down.
