What is the normal water temp for a 91 spider. I have read through my owners manual and can't find the answer.:confused:

For the older 2 liter SPICA cars 175 to 185 is normal. The newer cars may run a bit hotter for emissions.

Ciao,

I have a 185 degree thermostat in my 93 with a full emission setup. It hovers between 175 - 185. I reach the 185 at idle in traffic, etc. On occasion when I turn the A/C on to keep it lubed, I never exceed 185 but the fans are also on.

It also holds 55 psi oil pressure in cruise and around 7-9 psi at idle.
