Normal temperature for a GTV 2.0 16v?
I'm new to the Alfa scene, just having got my GTV last weekend, it's a 2001 2.0 TS.
My question is, what's the normal temperature that these cars run at on a cruise?
Having felt up a few pipes, my thermostat needs replacing I'm pretty sure. But even after it gets to temperature, it seems to drop back down again to sit at 70-80 odd, where I would have thought 90 was more usual?
Having it sitting idling on the drive, the radiator fan cut in at just above 90 shown on the gauge, which makes me think, either, these cars are designed to run fairly cool, or I've got a sensor/gauge failure.
Thank you very much for your time!
