Water temp

Hi ,does anyone know what temperature the water leaves the radiator to return to the engine on the 2.1 Syncro
Cheers

That is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string". The input temp, the speed of the vehicle and quality/size of the radiator are but three of the many variables that would influence output temp. Greg E

that would depend on how efficiently the radiator is working ( like if it's 20 years old it sure won't remove heat as well
as it once did . )

....and the temperature of the water entering  it of course.

My recent thinking on the two common choices of thermostat..
the usual 80 C or 87 C.......

Running it at a cooler temp is a little better for engine life.
Running it at the higher temp is a little better for fuel economy.

where running temp is a concern..I sure hope ya 'all are into Water Wetter.
that stuff works.
