    Default Jimny operating temperature

    Does anyone know what the correct operating temperature for a 2010 Jimny is? I have searched google and the forum and can't find any info on this. According to the OBD2 my Jimny runs between 95 and 105 degrees, is this standard or high?
    Thanks

    What does your temperature gauge in the dash display? Is it sort of in the middle or towards the high end of the gauge in the dash?

    It sits nicely in the middle and doesn't move around at all

    Laat mens wonder of myne bietjie hoog loop, en of die sensor dalk nie 100% akuraat lees nie...

    I guess what I am concerned about is the 100 degree mark. When water turns to steam the cooling properties obviously disappear. I know that pressure in the system and coolant can raise the boiling temp significantly but I wonder by how much?
    There is no boiling effect happening in the cooling system (that I can pick up) but would obviously be worried about sailing too close to the edge...

    Will check with obd2 to give you more distinctive answer that it is sitting in middle and not moving.
    I use the Torque app with obd2.

    Never really bothered me to check temp as the gauge very consistant.

    Thanks, that is what I am using to get my temp reding as well, it will be nice to be able to compare

    Depending on the pressure cap it could easily be 118-120 degrees.

    Drove a 4x4 trail on a farm in the Karoo one very hot December. On a really steep, long climb, low range 1st, at very slow speed (no airflow through radiator except from fan) and with mid to high 40s air temperature, I have seen coolant temp of 110 and air intake temperature of 87 on the UltraGuage. Jimny had virtually no power and the aircon was wasting its time.

    Even with the 1800 in I have absolutely no problem with cooling. Maybe even too cold at normal road conditions and temps mid 20s.
