Sounds like your temps are very similar to here. Thank you for all the info.Overall Vancouver Island is pretty temperate, but the world is warmer than it was when I bought the car. The day before yesterday it hit 31C here, which would be, let me think, about 89F. And that is in early June. By late July and into the first couple of weeks of August we regularly will get into the mid 30sC, which is 95F and above.
I have not had any overheating problems of note during that except when going over the mountain on the way to Victoria. On the going up side the water temp gauge has, on occasion, gotten as far up as maybe 2/3rds. Mainly I watch oil and auto trans fluid temps, though, as I have gauges for both. Even in the heat and mountain climb conditions, I almost never get transitions on either above 200F, and in normal use the oil temp will be 160-170F while trans fluid tends to hold in the 140-150F range.
I will look into a obd2 reader. Thanks for the link on the other thread
