Is 95 Celsius (203 F) water temperature normal?

Post by geokaps2005 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:36 am

As subjected above, I wonder whether a range of 92 Celsius (198 F) - 95 C (203 F), water temperature is normal for my 1.6 Bluehdi Cactus.

I measured it by using a Heads Up Display which gives even the possibility of having a rpm meter, too. Very cool.

I am a bit confused as I knew that water temperature should stay steady to 90 C. Driving a bit a aggressive it was reaching 95 and then it fell to 94-93. Many times. What do you think?

Perfectly normal.

On most cars that have a gauge they sit at 90C but this is a defined figure as a result of a tolerance (ie it sits at 90 when between about 88 and 98C), only when it goes above or below this threshold does it change - rarely is it sitting rock solid at 90C, it would be impossible to be honest

Thank you for your replies. I am using the hud x5. The problem is that you can't close-fit perfectly the cap of obd port as there is no extra room for the plug of hud.

Of course you can dislocate the obd and let it hanging. If you want to always have connected the hud.

I use it only when traveling so I just remove the cap for a while.

Here is the X5 HUD I use

As a closed pressure system the boiling point will be significantly above 100 deg.C (105deg.C?) so even 98 deg. Is a long way from being a problem. The thermostat and the temp sensor are mass produced I wouldn't be suprised if they are spec'd at +/- 5 deg. (+/-5%) and the opening and closing temp will have a variation as well.
