Anywhere up to about 190-220 is normal. You might want to wire your fans up to a switch so you can run them all the time/at your discretion if you don't like it that hot.
If you get a second and found this helpful I would greatly appreciate a rating.

Why is my 1994 ford e350 7.5 engine over heating

If it's overheating because of loss of coolant, replace the radiator cap with one of higher pressure. May just be a bad cap gasket.

Fan clutch waterpump radiator and timing belt replacement

Without more specifics, the only thing I can suggest would be for locating the parts you need. I'd recommend a salvage yard for any of your parts EXCEPT the waterpump. I owned a salvage yard and still recommend replacing the waterpump with a new (not rebuilt) unit. The costs are almost the same in almost all applications. If you have nowhere at all to work on the car, a cheap alternative to a repair shop is a tech school. You supply the parts and pay little or no $ for labor. Food for thought anyways. Good luck!

I had my engine rebuilt along with the coolant system replace with new part such as the radiator, thermostat,waterpump,tank,hoses and ect. and the car is still running hot on a 1999 cadilac deville

Hello Darryl, have you checked the accuracy of the gauge and confirmed the engine is actually over heating? Check the cooling fan Assembly to ensure they are fully operational. The shop that rebuilt your engine should of never released the vehicle if the engine was running hot after it was rebuilt & installed. If it fails from excessive heat, your warranty is worthless. I hope this information is helpful.

1990 jeep cherokee is overheating and we thought the radiator was clogged so we changed it, come to find out it wasn't that because it is still overheating.however we did drive it for a while and never had...

check fan if electric check running properly if mechanical bolted to engine check the clutch and belt usually the fan clutch goes and causes the fan not to spin fast enough to draw air across radiator also check belt for proper tightness other problem would be bad thermostat

I had the same problem... frustrating.

I picked up a repair manual at the parts store. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it with throttle body cleaner spray. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve (idle speed motor) which was very clogged. While I had the throttle body off I also changed the Map Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor. The manual will walk you through the steps. I had never done anything like this before. If I can do you so can you.
My Jeep has never run better. Good Luck

There are lots of reasons for a car to over heat. To say why in particular in your case is a vague question and vague answer.

If you are not capable of working on the vehicle and diagnosing it you probably should take it to a shop.

The following are possible reasons for your Jeep overheating:
1. Bad radiator fan/clutch
2. Clogged radiator.
3. Low antifreeze level
4. Waterpump leaking
5. Faulty Radiator Fan Relay
6. Failed Thermostat
7. Bad coolant temp sensor
8. Clogged antifreeze resovoir tube
9. The list goes on and on....

It's best to get it diagnosed by a professional

Radiator may be plugged up inside or a bad headgasket. Try the radiator first since it is far easier.
