No, you have a problem, temp. should hang around 200*

160

the thermostat regulated temp is 190 degrees however like most gm cars if sitting still the fans wont come on until 220 or so the only way to override that is to put the a/c on which will turn on the cooling fans at low speed as long as the a/c works, so the actuate answer is, it is normal but only if it happens while in traffic or standing still, if while driving make sure the radiator is free from blockage ,a.k.a plastic bag caught in grill, and hosing off the radiator with a garden hose periodically is a good practice

thank you sir, the car was idling, fans came on at approximately 224 and cooled the engine to 208, gauge never went past the middle of the left side. car runs fantastic.. again, thank you sir. gary

my car was overheating today and I let it cool off is 172 to low or just right?

Vehicles today run 195° and depending on the weather, how hot it is out during the summer months, they will run 210°. When an engine is getting over 210° F. there is a problem. Either a hot humid day, stuck in traffic causing an engine to run hotter. Getting over 210° is pushing it. May need a coolant flush, the thermostat changed out, and possibly the problem could be a bad water pump along with the fans not turning on. An engine running hot causes the head gaskets to fail, and extensive repair cost.
