call any auto parts store, and ask (they can look up a thermostat for your car), usually 180 degrees Fahrenheit. (average).

mine said 194 and I panicked but the dealership wanted me to bring the car down blah blah blah maybe the water pump but cserrato's information has helped. I called auto zone and they too told me 194 was pretty normal. Thanks to all you guys

coolant temperature 115c is normal ?

Let me put it this way any car running over 93 degrees is over heating a regular run temp is 90 degrees Celsius for any car sold on the market anything less then that your fine anything over that and your going to damage your engine. if your running at 115degrees you are going to start experiencing engine failure and soon as this kind of head is what warps the heads. have that car checked out immediately before you cause it damage. 4 main cooling issues are 1.Leaks 2.thermostat failure 3.Water pump failure (ussaly is followed by a leak but not always) 4. Cooling fans are no longer doing thier job (aka electric cooling fan may not be working or clutch fan may have gone faulty in its old age)
