Anyone out there driving Picanto have installed with the water & oil temperature gauages? What is the range? My oil temp is in the range of 70~80 degree C and my water temp is in the range of 90~100 degree C on constant speed of 80km after 5min. At 100 degree C, the fan will cut-in, cooling the temp till 90degree C. The temp will then rise back 100 degree C and the fan will cut-in again. Is this range normal or is there something wrong with the calibration. :unsure:

Oil temps looks good, 80c is about right for a good running engine.
Te,ps, thermostat is fully open at 92c, and fan should cut in at 95c.

Thank you for the advised. Do you think that i will need to calibrate the water-temp sensor, or just take the present reading as normal? :innocent:
