the normal running engine temperature on the passat is 195 degrees , most of the time the primary cooling fan gives out and they run somewhat warmer than that.a belt connects the primary and secondary cooling fans ! you may check the belt if your passat is running warm.

Yes, Means your engine is cool. If red at anytime you are overheating.

When operating properly, the cooling fan stays on until the temperature drops to normal.

If it's a 1.8T you should be between 35 psi and 60 psi @ 2000 rpm at normal operating temp

the normal operating temperature for cars is around 190 degrees.

160 to 185 degrees F is normal running temperature.

Engine temperature rising when the engine is idling is normal. The car is sitting still and no air is entering the engine compartment. This will cause the engine temperature to rise. The cooling fans then come on and the engine returns to a normal temperature. Unless the cooling fans do not bring the temperature down, you have no problems and this is totally normal.

The normal engine operating temperature, for a 3306 Caterpillar diesel engine, is 180 degrees. The engine should not be operated at temperatures above 200 degrees.

usually 190 degrees Fahrenheit

Yes it is normal. That is the temperature that the engine was designed to operate.

it is vacuum vavle controled by engine temperature. mostly used until engine gets up to normal operating temperature, or after the engine gets to normal operating temperature. depending on what is hooked up to the vavle. i hope this helps Answer your question.

mine is the same ,,, did you find out why? my car 130hp red DI on the back but engine cover jsut has tdi in silver

The normal engine operating temperature for a 1987 Mustang GT is around 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything above 220 degrees Fahrenheit might cause the engine to overheat.

I have a 2001 1.8 Turbo Passat. I believe the white smoke is due to the engine sludge problem that had a recall on it (I missed the mileage cut off for a new engine). Sludge builds up on the Catalytic Converter. After a certain amount of build up and the temperature of the Cat is at normal temperature, white smoke will come out of tail pipe when accelerating. When it starts, the engine will shake slightly and sound strained. I try to gently continue my acceleration until the sludge is cleared (white smoke stops). Changing the oil frequently helps. Using synthetic oil helps. Shane

My 1992 PA with a 3.8 engine has a a 195 degree thermostat. This causes the normal engine temperature to be about 205 degrees. The pressure cap will keep the fluid from boiling up to about 240 degrees.

Normal engine operating temperature is 190-215 degrees F.

It tells you the temperature (greenhouse; engine; person; etc.).

That depends entirely on the calibration of the sensor and the display. The actual engine temperature is controlled by the thermostat.

Check the ignition coil. At cold coils generally operate properly, when the coil heats a failing unit will start to break down and fail causing misfiring and poor engine operation. Second check for a failing ignition controller in the distributor.

The fan only runs when needed to help cool the engine. The engine coolant sensor or a separate engine temperature switch is used to monitor engine temperature. Extra cooling is not needed when an engine is first started, so the fan does not come on until that engine reaches normal operating temperature which is usually from 195 to 215°F. The fan will then cycle on and off as needed to maintain the coolant temperature. So the fan runs mostly at idle or low-speed when the engine is at normal picture.
