What is the normal temperature for Nissan 2005 SL driven in hot climate in Africa? If the temperature rises above this range and the fan works, is it a cause for worry?

Asked by Dec 19, 2014 at 09:08 AM about the 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Temperature of my Nissan Altima 2005 rises to the red range, especially when traffic is moving slowly.

1 Answer

68,445

Sounds like the cooling fans aren't working. Normal operating temperature is around 195°F. Being stuck in traffic on a hot summer day with the air conditioning on may push the gauge to around 220°F. Anything higher than that is an indicator of something going on with the cooling system. HTH. -Jim
