Ive started to pay a little more attention to my cobalt since hittting 50,000 miles. Ive noticed that while driving my cobalts temp will stay around 190 degrees but while idle it may rise as high as 218 degrees. Ive checked the manual and it doesnt give a normal running temp that the car should remain around. My light hasnt come on, no steam and my coolant level is normal in amount and color. I have a feeling it may be the water pump but am just not sure. Any comments?

Apparently this is normal. I have seen the temp go as high as 219 while sitting at a railroad crossing for a passing train.

As long as it doesn't go above 220, you're fine.

Just make sure to watch for engine cooling or w.e it says..
My hose clips some how got broken or unclipped one day and my car was pushin like 220s-230s and I couldnt figure out wtf was going on. I parked and checked all my hoses and fluids and everything was fine. Drove her on some ramps and turns out my clips were off :|
