Had a similar thing happen to me, recharged the system and have not had it happen since, note that you should make sure you get a recharger with a long hose, the recharge port is low behind the radiator. It occurred on mine at the beginning of summer.
Hard to say. Under normal conditions, vent temp should be about 20 or 25 degrees less than outside air temp. So if outside air temp is 90 degrees and the engine is at idle speed, vent temp would be around 65 or 70. On the road the vent temp could be less than 60 degrees. If outside air temp is 70 degrees vent temp will be around 40 - 50.
Depends. A normal cooling system runs between 195 degrees when the thermostat opens, to 230 degrees when the cooling fan kicks on. If you are experiencing air temps over 90 degrees, the cooling system could run at 210 or higher. Idling and moving make a difference too.
Change the relay, situated in a black plastic box up in front of the battery. Costs about 7 pounds / 11 dollars USD on ebay and takes 30 seconds to do. Until you get it fixed, protect the engine when temp get over, say, 90 degrees celcius, by opening up your side dash vents, turn the in-car fan on max and the temp up to max. The hot air will go directly out the windows and you will see the temp gauge drop back to about 80 degrees. I did this for a year until I figured out the relay needed replacing.
I have a 2007 CX-7 and my vehicle did the same thing. There is a Technical Service Bulletin on the the problem that explains how to correct the pull. It basically states that the technician has to rotate the position of the strut mount on the left side 180 degrees to the right which should lower the left side caster angle. Any good alignment shop will know that the right side caster angle should be .5 degrees higher on the right to compensate for the crown of the roadway. For example my readings were 3.2 on the left and 2.8 on the right. This is reversed and is why my car pulled to the right. After the strut mount was rotated my reading were 2.4 on the left and 2.8 on the right. That all but eliminated the pull. Verify your caster readings on the alignment printout. If this was already done then there isnt much more that can be corrected. Mine still has a slight drift to the right.
