i have in my ctr this DashDAQ supported EOBD values

and find out that the operating temp is between 85 and 102degrees on the c scale when the thermostat gives the signal for the ventilator to start .

the flactuation in the needle is little and never goes more than 9 o'clock.

i'm gonna look into it better and write what exact reeding i get from my dashhdaq.

With my OBD-Scantool (Obdscope for Symbian+Diamex DX-70 Bluetooth) i found out that the temperature gauge seems to be "lying" quite a bit.

It starts moving at slightly below 50C (48 to be exact) - and reaches its normal position at 60C! Operating temperature is around 80-85C at normal outside temperatures and driving.

The gauge does not tell you that your engine is fully warmed up, just that it is not cold anymore!

This observation was made with a 2.2 i-CTDi, perhaps someone with an OBD-Scantool can check if it is the same for the petrol engines.
