Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I hi guys, I would like to know what it the correct operating temperature for this vehicle
it seems to be running to hot.  The  fan turns on when the temperature reaches about 240 F
and turns off when the temperature drops  to about 220F. The issue that I have is that when the fan is about to turn on and I turn the engine off sounds like is overheating
since the fan did not get to cool off.

That sounds about right. My 85 Z28 fans come on at about those same temps. From what I have found this is normal for these cars. Although mine does not make any sounds when I turn it off hot. I suspect your radiator cap might need to be replaced. If it's old it could be letting pressure off when it shouldn't be and this would sound like its overheating .
