I have replaced radiator, fan clutch, water pump and thermostat and still running at 3/4 is that normal?

I guess that depends on what 3/4 is temperature-wise. Engines normally operate in the 180-210 degree F range depending on the thermostat and whether there is a mechanical or electric fan. Mechanical fans keep the temperature more stable. If you feel that after what you have done that the temperature indication is still too high, the issue may be with the sending unit for the temp gauge or the gauge itself. Have the coolant temperature checked with a second temp device if possible, otherwise, try the sending unit first and see what happens.

3 liter will not reach normal operating temperature.

Maybe it's your engine temp sensor...?

1999 Nissan quest my van takes 40 minutes to reach normal operating temperature IF I have the defrost on, this does not happen if I have heat only on

By "normal operating temperature", are you referring to the engine temp or the cabin temp? If cabin temp, the defrost selection also engages your air conditioning system which lowers the temperature and the humidity of the air blown through your heating ducts. Although, you should not have to wait 40 minutes for warm air to flow. Check your engine's coolant level to ensure that it's filled properly, and be certain that the temperature control selector is set to the warmest level possible. There are other possible malfunctions that could account for this condition, but we'll leave that alone for the present. Now, if you're talking about the engine's normal operating temperature, please disregard what I have said so far and reply back.

Operating temp

The thermostat opens at 195 degrees and the radiator fan comes on around 220 degrees. So normal range is between these two temps.

Take care of your cooling problem! Is it overheating? or just during normal operating temperature? If it is under normal operating temp you have a bad heat sensor!

2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally

Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.
