The 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix SE has a normal operating temperature due to the engine. This is usually around 230 degrees.
Like 210 F
Because it is a Pontiac. Sorry, man.
Check the temperature sensor
195 degrees I believe, but you can check your owners manual or one on Pontiac's website. The normal operating temperature with a stock thermostat is one line past the 1/4 mark. If you idle in traffic for long periods it can creep up a couple of lines but will/should come back down when you start moving. Hope this helps. "G"
Pontiac Grand Am was created in 1973.
Mine runs around 200-220...
Normal temp ranges are from 180 to 192 degrees F. Low temps can indicate an open thermostat, high temps can ruin an engine.
