Ok on my car it heats up to 200-205 when it's over 90 out.I know thats not that bad,but my question is why is it.If I put the in natural and let it coast it cools off alitte,or if I let it idle it will stay the same temp,but when I drive it heats up.
SO what I'm asking is why,coasting or at idle it will cool off alittle,and driving it even slow at low rpm or high rpms it heats up.What dose that tell me???

Thanks Sam,and yes I get what your saying.And you said it every well too.
But I dont get why dose it only cool down coasting in natural,not coasting in drive?
Ok I'll stop,sorry my backs sore today and I dont want to be at work.

Wouldn't that be because the trans is engaged causing the motor to work harder?

Scoop,

If you are running a loose converter it can cause some overheating problems.

Timing? Too advanced or too much vacuum advance will cause a huge amount of heat under any load at partial throttle. You would have kind of a shaky running engine if you were too advanced. Doesn't hurt to check.
