Is this normal? Engine temperature?

Coolant level is perfect. These pics are 5 mins apart just parked up running. At the higher temperature the fan still not kicking in. How high temp until it does normally?? Very new to this engine. Car is a 200 Cup. Cheers

Sometimes the thermostat will fail and stay open in a 200. Thermostats in 200s rarely sit in the middle of the gauge.

If your temperature gauge is usually like your first picture when you are driving around then you might need to replace the thermostat.

The gauge should sit like your second picture when driving around.

Yes, drove to work this morning and it is sitting at the lower end like the first pic after a 30 min drive. I will get a new genuine Renault thermostat. Do you know the part number and price approx please mate?

No worries. It is a fairly easy job to change the thermostat over. When I got my 200 the temperature reading on the dashboard always looked too cold. The only time the fan kicked in was when I had the car running on the drive stationary for about 30 minutes. I replaced the thermostat and the gauge then looked better. I still can't hear the fan kicking in but have not really driven the car in hot weather since I replaced the thermostat.
