Yes that is normal. The gauge is intentionally exaggerated some.

I have a 1995 ford f-350 powerstroke that the water temp. runs warmer than should. It actually runs warmer at higher speeds than it does in town. any suggestions?

What is the coolant temperature and how are you measuring it? You need an accurate temperature gauge (the truck doesn't have an accurate one).

The car seems to be running hot all the time we have no leaks in the radiator what could it be

What is hot? MEasure with external temp gauge. Normal would be 190 to 220, with pressure....

Does it run hotter under load?

My Jimmy 1995 Overheat whith A/C On

Is it idicating an actual overheat or is it just running warmer than usual? Do you have a guage or a light? Most vehicles WILLrun hotter with the AC on because the AC condensor is directly infront of the radiator. Some have an auxiliary fan for this. If you do make sure it is running. Start and get the engine up to running temp. With the hood open peek in to see if you have one or two cooling fans. Watch with the AC on that Both are running in cycles.

Engine running a little hotter than normal, escpcially on hills.

see what your coolant is rated. you might just need to flush it. is your temp gauge going crazy? ( hot cold) could be the thermostat

Please help me with my air conditioning for my 1995 jetta

HI, giving the compressor 12v directly is not the way to go as you are bypassing the entire fail safe cercuit. it seem to me that your ac gas is low(can be checked via ac pressure gauges) wich means you have a system leak sumwhere. as soon as your hi/low pressure switch(depending on system) detect inferior pressure to the spesified pressure ,the ac compressor voltage is cut in order to protect the pump from seizure.

Or perhaps your evaporator(small radiator like unit behind dash) can get freezed up caused by either too mutch system gas(check pressure) or poor opperation of the expantion valve. the evaporator then has a sensor(themometer) wich measures evap. temp and if the value drops below spec (usially round about7degrees) the ac compressor will be cut once again(fail safe)

Maybe your ac compressor overheats due to inferior system oil/oil capasity, also note that only some systems incorperate the function of measuring ac pump temp. then again temp to high= fail safe=no12v to ac pump.

Good luck.
