    Hi, does anyone else monitor their temps via the SRT Performance page screen? Particulary the Guage 1 screen with Coolant, Oil, trans, etc? I was wanting to see what others get with their temps. Reason is my 2016 Challenger HC overheated with only 250 miles and it turned out to be a stuck thermostat. After the repair I am getting 201-203 cruising down highway or driving around town. At redlights and idle the temp will go up to 206-208 and come back down to 203. After 30 40 mile trips of non stop driving and pulling into driveway idling for a few minutes the temps will rise to 213-218 and go back to 203. I've put 120 miles on the car since the repair and temps are consistent. 80 degree weather last few days. It seems to be running great but was wondering if anyone else is getting the slightly rising temps at idle. I'm probably just being paranoid but just wanted to see what you guys get. Thanks

    seems about right. idling is the worst. fans kick in around 225. normally 2-3 driving. up to 205 stop and go.

    Normal range for mine is 197 - 207 running in open air. In traffic, I see temps as high as 219 before the fan kicks on and drops me to the low 200s. Your ranges seem normal to me.

    in traffic, mine consistently goes up to 225 then comes back down. So I would say, you are in good shape compared to me.

    Sounds consistent with mine. With 200+ degree thermostat expect temps to cycle slighty above and below based on driving conditions.
