How hot is it?

Does anyone know what the normal water temp range is supposed to be in a 91 honda civic 1.5L 5sp. ?

Coolant temps can reach 210-220 degrees under normal driving conditions.




Under some severe conditions like stop-and-go traffic or climbing a long steep hill, the coolant can get as high as around 240 or so and still be considered normal. This is also about the temperature at which the cooling fan should kick in.
