What is the running temperature for a kia sportage 2 litre deisil automatic


In the most general of terms a diesel engine would operate at 86-92 C.

However, much depends on the distance you are driving. On a very short trip(s) your needle is unlikely to get much above cold on the gauge. That's because an engine needs a minimum of 5 miles before the thermostat begins to open to allow coolant to circulate, and 10 miles before your engine is getting to 'normal operating temperature'.

The ideal position of the needle is N - normal ... midway between cold and hot.

If, on a long run, the needle doesn't get much past the cold mark it's probably due to either a faulty coolant sensor temperature sending a wrong reading to the gauge, or a thermostat which is stuck in the open position.

If the needle is indicating too hot - again it could be a faulty temperature sensor, a faulty thermostat - or other problems.

With a fully warmed engine and sitting in traffic/idling your needle would creep from Normal to Hot .. and then the electric fan would kick in.

Engine temp runs up as far as 232 deg. and then back down as far as 203 deg. . Is this normal?


Hello Lifeebyythee.

In warm ambient temperatures this is very close to normal.
If it isn't you may have some blockage in the radiator and should be flushed.
Ideally, I'd like to see a drop of about 4 degrees on each.
But that amount could be the sensor range slightly out.
When the temperature reaches the high end of the scale the radiator cooling fan is coming on and increasing the airflow through the radiator.
The thermostat is fully opened around 195. The computer senses the temperature and turns on the fan at the high end of the scale.
If your system is not boiling over it should be fine.
If you have further questions regarding this please ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

1998 ford ranger 3.0. Heat does not work. Replaced thermostat then water pump. Still blowing cold air. Coolant streams out of the top of the coolant tank after engine is at operating temps. Temperature...


Hello did you flush out the cooling system while you had you coolant drained?this would be ideal to do at t hat time.Also be sure to bleed All air out of cooling system to avoid air lock.

My 2005 Sante Fe hesitates and won't get up to speed whenever it is damp or rainy outside. What causes this? Thanks


It could be your MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. Do you have any SEL {Service Engine) light coming on?

A mass air flow sensor is used to find out the mass of air entering a fuel-injected internal combustion engine. The air mass information is necessary for the engine control unit (ECU) to balance and deliver the correct fuel mass to the engine. Air changes its density as it expands and contracts with temperature and pressure. In automotive applications, air density varies with the ambient temperature, altitude and use of a turbocharger and this is an ideal application for a mass sensor. (See stoichiometry and ideal gas law.)
There are two common types of mass airflow sensors in usage on automotive engines. These are the vane meter and the hot wire. Neither design employs technology that measures air mass directly. However, with an additional sensor or two, the engine's air mass flow rate can be accurately determined.
Both approaches are used almost exclusively on electronic fuel injection (EFI) engines. Both sensor designs output a 0.0- 5.0 volt or a pulse-width modulation (PWM) signal that is proportional to the air mass flow rate, and both sensors have an intake air temperature (IAT) sensor incorporated into their housings.
When a MAF is used in conjunction with an oxygen sensor, the engine's air/fuel ratio can be controlled very accurately. The MAF sensor provides the open-loop predicted air flow information (the measured air flow) to the ECU, and the oxygen sensor provides closed-loop feedback in order to make minor corrections to the predicted air mass.

Am trying to find out normal temp range 92 accord


The standard thermostat temperature is 195 F.

The ideal running motor running temperature is between 195F to 210F.

Still want to shoot into a thermal runaway.


First of try to understand exactly what part you mention exactly how they work or function
  1. please place a new low speed relay as it try to make out thermal heating cool at it's initial 1st stage level of heating so that the temperature remain maintain if thus it reaches the second level of heating then the high speed relay act at that time & the speed of radiator fan increase to get thermal heating in control.
  2. the thermostat regulate the heating temperature of the engine it senses the temperature & signal to the relay the relay then react according to the temperature level of engine at low heating it operate the low speed relay & high temperature it signal to high speed relay so the engine temperature does not rise to extended level of heating or overheating.
  3. see for thermostat valve is failure if that so replace it new sometime most of the mechanic change it or cancel it so that the temperature does not rise as this thermostat help engine maintain it's ideal temperature which is required by the engine for regular or good working even at extreme climatic condition.
  4. Do check for every tensioner or Ideal Bearing as far consider on the No. of miles or Km the vehicle has run according to us the tensioner or ideal bearing are suppose to be replace at an interval of 30000 to 35000 Km. but this replacement include both Engine timing belt & tensioner & ideal tensioner bearing.
  5. A water pump flow depend on the tension of the drive belt some vehicle come with water pump which drive on inner timing belt tension & some on the fan belt or external tension belt of engine.
for further more FAQ do send in or place your problem we will sort it out till then have a safe drive & happy motoring from siddhanth.....!
