Is 120 the right temp on a 420 SEL???
I have read here and there that temperature on my 88 420SEL can go up to 120, this is normal and there should not be a problem. My aux fan works and comes on, oil and coolant are where they should be, and still in not-so-hot heat of 70 outside, the gauge goes up to near 120 after 20-30 minutes of regular driving. Air really does not work well, and things just seem HOT.
The other day, the hose blew off the radiator soon after I parked, spewing coolant everywhere.
This all does not seem normal.
Anyone have any insite into this?? Is this a thermostat problem?? THANKS
