normal temperature for 2.0JTS
good evening everybody!
i have a bit of a question> i've changed the timing belt kit and thermostat this weekend. the behavior of the water temperature is pretty much the same as before and i don't really know what to make of it. the temperature is always at the ~75 degrees mark (a third under the 90 mark), except the times i put it through high revs or when i do city driving, when it goes up to 90 (or above until the fan kicks in). is this normal for this engine or the problem was not the thermostat in the first place?
also i've noticed today that with the temperature knob set at 21 degrees and the speed set at 1 (so not on auto), the air sent to the cabin was pretty warm. certainly more than 21. i figured this might have something to do with the water temperature...
