What is the average temp the car should be running

Asked by Jun 06, 2015 at 10:05 PM about the 2001 Chrysler 300M STD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My dash gauge reads just below the middle. I have a diagnostic (thing that fits under the dash - Smart Trek) from AAA and it keeps telling me the car is running at 221 degrees and should be closer to 204. It is not overheating, boiling over, or any other symptom. Is this an issue?

Most today's cars will run around 220 degrees just before the cooling fans kick in. Just as long as the fans are fully operational I don't see a problem here.

I am told by the mechanic that the fans are working. It has a new radiator, water pump, timing belt among other things. I just wanted to get another opinion. Thank You

That's a little high, but do a live data scan to see what the computer is reading, it might be a gauge error or sender issue. When it get cold make sure the cooling system is full.
