Your coolant temp guage should stay around half way.

By oil is "watery" I assume you mean to say thin and clean. which is normal however if there is actual water in it meaning is white and milkish looking that could be a big problem the head gasket could be blown or a cooling/oil valley broken. although sounds more like you're just being finicky 104deg. doesn't seem very hot for engine oil to me in fact it should prob. be around 180deg. depending on the oil cooler
