I would think one of you guys or girls would have an answer for me. In my earlier ?, yesterday, I would like to know what engine temperature you have when the electric fan on the radiator starts. Some one must hear it begin to run. Mine was 230 when I parked in the garage, and it was not running. Thanks, I think. Buzzard

When you say "engine temp", do you mean water or oil?

I've never seen my water temp that high (it got up to 221 one time while waiting in line on I-17 b/c of a crash, had the a/c on during June), I don't watch my oil as closely, but 230 would be a bit on the high side as well on that.

Water. I have no way of knowing my oil temp. on my SRT-8. It has been 95 degrees here in Lauderdale, so my a/c has been on. Thanks for the first reply. Buzzard

Wish I could help ya but I'm still hunting for my SRT8. I've had a couple close calls. Just haven't bagged the elusive SRT8 yet.

oil temp is in the EVIC - scroll thru the different menus. i generally run 210 - i assume fan comes on there as temp stops going up.

You can get water and oil temp in the EVIC.

Reason I asked is because someone else got them confused a little while back on here. Just make sure your looking at the right one. If your water is running 230, then you better take it in. Mine runs about 210 under normal driving. Like I said, I saw it jump up to about 220 one time, outside temp was about 115 (I live in AZ) and I was sitting at an idle with A/C on. I turned it off, rolled down the windows, and it came down.

I would assume your electric fan comes on around 200 or so, but I haven't really checked.

Man, I feel dumb. I never noticed that is was an oil can picture on the evic, just like the pressure. I thought it was an engine coolant reading, sort of a more accurate reading of the water temperature gauge. Just got back from a short trip, and my fan came on at 220 today. Thank you guys. Buzzard
