I am in Canada and even through this hot summer we have just had, I have never seen the temp above 98C. Could be a thermostat issue or maybe you need an oil change??? Just a couple of ideas.The temperature outside is 12 Celsius and the car is hitting 106 Celsius then the fan kicks in , is this normal?
Perfectly normal for an electric fan...low speed fan kicks on at 217* and off at 190* the stock stat temp. It'll always heat up to 217 at idle because there isn't any air going through the radiator. Now if this was a truck with a clutch fan you'd have a prob.I was idling in the parking lot for about 10 minutes, no ac on, and I here the fan cut on. I go to the coolant and its 217. I was like OMFG!! But it quickly went back down to 189. And since everyone said its normal I'm just not going to worry about it.
