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.

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
