    Hello, I was wondering what is the normal operating temp of a 1997 Dodge 8.0. I am seeing a wide range of answers when I Google it. Maybe I can get a straight answer on here. Thanks and have nice day

    Stock thermostat is 195*. Many people install a 180* tstat, and when towing temps can rise to 210*.
