Question about 2008 Pontiac G5
My son called me and said when he turned on the heater in his car it smelled funny so he turned the heater off and checked the water temp and it is reading 180. Is that normal?
Hi.Yes,normal operating tenpeture for these vehicles is anythere between 180 an 205. At about 205 degree,the ECM turns on the coolant fans.The only time the coolant fans are on at all times is when the a/c is on.As far as the funny smell,it could be the heatercore starting to leak.If it smells like coolant,it will be the heater core.I suggest you take it to your local dealership.This repair will be covered under the factory warrenty.
