Default temperature 90C

Hi everyone

When i start off driving my temp is low and after sometime my temperature gauge goes to 90c and stays on this number, and it don't move down or up when driving around the city, I read somewhere if I turn on the Air-con to see if the high speed fan turns on but in my case it didn't work for me. Then I took it to Halshaw and they told me this temperature is normal and not to worry about it, they also said all peugeot cars in summer gauge reads 90c because of the hot weather?

So is it normal temperature in city driving

I was also told by perry's the temp should be 80-85 now i am confused even more what it should be!!

Can anyone help

What engine is it? My 1.6 Hdi 110 diesel stays around 75-80 when cruising and 85-90 when driving slow/traffic (but this is in Malta). Is the car over heating at all? Have you checked for coolant loss?

typically the dial will sit halfway once warmed up. Any more and any less and you have problems.

My 307 used to sit at around 85 BUT it was hard to say correctly what the temperature actually was as the dial graduations were in sixths rather than tenths. I doubt that the guages are accurate enough to make a great deal of difference. On some cars they don't even have numbers. My opinion is that thes guages are just a guide and you really only need to worry if the pointer goes into the red and stays there.

Very true, look at this from an Escort:

My 3008 (3 months old) sits bang on 90C once it warms up. This is for both cool and also very warm conditions ... very consistent.

My Peugeot 1.4, S, 16v Petrol. And no the car is not over heating at all when I looked at the temp gauge I just got worried seeing it at 90, the Air-con works and all the air fans work in the car.

Today I took the car for a long run after I got back to the car I then turn the air-fan speed to 4 and press the air-con at the same time, when the car was idle, I then took a look in the car engine and saw the radiator fan came on how strange is that?

For a test I turn off the fan speed to 0 and then the air-con each one to see what the problem was but they all worked with the radiator fan turn on and off so no problem there

When I drive home the temp gauge dropped today for the first time in days. that is so weird I did no repair or touch anything in the engine or open the any fuse box 1 or 2 in fact I booked the car for a diagnostic check this week but now I don't need it.?

I looked in the car manual the temp gauge A/B and it is the same as you said so it must be right!

Thanks for everyone for the help and reply

Hi, it seems that the car is actually OK. This may sound stupid or obvious, but did you consider the fact that the weather is now getting warmer which may result in the car running slightly warmer than usual? (especially when compared to freezing winter).

I would just check for any coolant loss which may indicate a leak. Otherwise I wouldn't worry as long as the temperature stays on the normal range and the car doesn't over-heat.

my engine temp whilst driving on motorway will rise to about 120 (the notch between 90 and 140 im guessing is 120) and it wont go ne higher.

i thought most cars the fan would come on when the temp reached 95 and would bring it down to 90. i parked up tonight and the gauge was just below 90 so to check if the fan came on i left the engine running and the gauge didnt move ne higher than just below the 90.

do cars have a higher engine temp when they are being driven on motorways etc as the revs will be more going at a higher speed.

dunno if my fan works so im changing its resistor at the weekend.

Yes. Oil temp rises, and as the oils secondary function is as a coolant the while engine temp will rise. Usually the thermostat will handle it and there'll be little appreciable difference to the coolant temp.
