Those of you with a V, what is your coolant temp in normal driving? I am concerned that mine is running high. I usually show 190-220 in normal driving.

What is the thermostat in the V? Anyone know?

I know the Oil temp issue, but I think this is different...

I show anywhere from 190-224 coolant temp...and yes, the oil temp issue exists on my car. These numbers are showing up with ambient temps of high 70's around here...not sure what it will look like in the summer at 100+ degree heat.

The thermostat starts opening at 194 and is fully open at 225, so the numbers you are listing are normal.

Today with ambient at 65 f the coolant was around 195 f and the oil temp was around 225.
There seems to be about the 35 degree difference about any given time I check.

Mine runs about the same.
