normal running temp for our cars is between 195-220

yeah, anything over 210 and you might have a problem, unless you have been doing a lot of slow stop and go driving. If you go on the highway and it doesnt cool down a little you def have a problem

Staight up and down it right where you want it to be. 90 degrees C is 194 degrees F-Right in the normal range. Mine usually reads just a hair left of center.
