  • Engine Running Hot

    My engine runs hot but only during hot weather. Is this a flow or radiator problem? It doesn't overheat but gets close to it. Thanks.

      About 200. It real Steady at 180 all the time, except warmer/hot weather. Thanks.

        Unless you have the computer reprogrammed or a fan switch it will heat up, 200 isn't high at all I think the low fans are 220 and high fans is 235 . So your good.

          Im in AZ so its hot, run anywhere between 210 and 220 thats with programmed pcm and fan switch. Also extended air dam for RK sport since I have ground effects. This is during the summer.

            Scan of factory settings - not sure where I got it from.

                Are you going by the gauge in the cluster or an actual scan of what the temperature is? It sounds like you are within factory parameters. When mine started running hot I found that only my low fan was kicking on and my high fan was not. If you can use a scanner to command them both on you can verify. If you don't have a scanner, I think by turning the AC on it will engage both fans *I think* - when I get my camaro out of storage I could verify this for sure, unless someone else can chime in.

                  Thank you for the help! I'm so use to it running 180 that I worry. In traffic, it MAY get to 210 but once I get going it lowers. Thanks
