Operating temp of 2.4l?
I have been trying to figure out the normal operating temp for the 2.4l laf 2011.
Looking around for thermostats for my car show that they are all 180° rated. So they open at that temp.
Getting the engine rebuilt, so I may have it replaced.
Last winter, it would take a while to get to that temp.
Initially, the temp would would rise quickly. But once it got to about 160° it would take another 10 minutes to get to 180°.
So I would take about 15 - 20 minutes to get there depending on how cold.
Outside temp would range from +-20f°
Obviously, crappy gas mileage until then.
It seems that withmost engines, operating temp is around 200°
