My normal engine temp is 217. I know that is too high as i have a new pump and thermostst i assume a new radiator is in the offing. I would appreciate some input as to the specs i should look for in the replacement and a reliable source. Is the replcement on the SLS as routine as it is on many cars? Anything else i should check before i order a replacement Thanks Jim

That is NOT too high. It's actually quite normal.

217 is fine, most cars around here run at 220 or so (except mine, good ol 176!!)
