I was told this is normal temperature, I was told by another mechanic it should be down in the 185 range.

180-185F was for many years the desired norm. Not necessarily now - 240F typical, N54.

Your gauge may not be accurate!

Show up @ U o'D now and then.....where're best eats, Newark/Wilmington lately?
