320d High Coolant Temp

Just recently decided to check my coolant temp using the BC hidden menus.

It heated up in good time then just sat at 97deg~ for the rest of the journey.
Searching through other threads I noticed that people are saying it should be at 90deg.

I'm going to check again when I get time just to confirm it.

Low temps seem to be a common complaint but I've not seen any threads about high temps, what are the possible causes?

I'd say that was about spot on.

Likely just running on the high side of average. Bound to be some examples with components with the + side of tolerance.

BTW, is your car the later N47 engine? That has one thermostat and does tend to be more stable anyway.

Thanks for the input.

I will check again tomorrow to verify. I think I heard somewhere that the DPF regen cycle has an effect on temperatures so it could be that.

I was worried that it could indicate improper oil or an issue with the coolant.

It's not the easiest menu to get to.

Good luck!

My N47 320d's temp is stable @ 88*C with AC on (front vent running).
Highest i've seen was 98*C, in summer time, car stopped, AC off; when temp hit 98*C front fan started running until temp decreased to 95*C, then it stopped and the whole cycle repeated.
If i turned AC on or the car was moving, the temp went back to ~88*C
