Well on mine , I discovered that the thermostat had actually fell apart and was letting the water go passed too fast to heat up, so check there first. The problem I found on mine was the heat temp control cable. The plastic tab under the dash that moved the flapper to control how much hot air came into the interior was broken at the cable end. With much patience and scratched arms I reattached the cable.

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.

The power steering module has lost the engine speed signal. This is normal if the engine is not running. If the fault code comes up with the engine running, you have a problem.

the sending unit is located in the engine block, sends a signal to the temp guage, mind you the engine temp guage is not accuate, but at the 1/2 way mark is "normal" for the engine operating temperature

195 to 210 degrees is the normal range.

Only in an emergency. The computer will turn on the check engine light if the temp never reaches normal. A cold running engine is also more prone to oil sludge problems.Only in an emergency.

The engine should be at normal running temperature. Make sure to shift slowly through all the gears and return to Park before checking. If you've been driving on the highway or been working the engine excessively, be sure to let the engine cool for about 30 minutes, then return to normal running temperature. -Kevin

Running at operating temperature around 40 psi.

It should be 30-35 psi with the engine running.

Oil sputter is going to be a normal thing if the oil cap is not on while the engine is running. The engine should never be run with the oil cap open. The engine actually has less compression when the oil cap is open, and this could hurt the engine.
