Hi guys (and gals)! Can someone tell me the "normal" temp reading on the dash instrument panel. While riding around, I notice the temp fluctuates between 190-210. Had the antifreeze changed a couple of years ago at a GM dealer. 2006 Soltice with 29000 miles; number 110 in production. THX!

THX! Was a little concerned with all the discussion regarding water pump problems.

That is normal. Mine runs around 190 when moving and will go to 210 at a stoplight.

183 to 199 with new pump, thermo and coolant. Had been 205 to 216...so I think the lower temps are ,more normal. Also the rad fan ran on after shutdown but not any longer..

My 2008 GXP Turbo runs at 199-201 on a normal drive in town or highway. It will rise to 205 on a hot day in the city while stuck in traffic. The highest I have seen it go is 208 but quickly drops back to 199-201 as soon as I start driving again. My trusted mechanic says 210 is nothing to worry about. Hope this helps

When the fan is running, in Florida, on 275 between St Pete and Bradenton (95 degree), normally 199-203, a bit more with AC........ when the fan controller died........ well over 250 when the light came on, then with the heater on high, 220. they tend to run hot.
