I am a little concerned that my 2022 does not have a fan shroud. Is this a problem?
Thank youThe most I’ve ever seen is a brief 202 and that was immediately after leaving with a cold engine and hitting 60-70 mph. I figured it was a delay between the temp spike and the thermostat opening up. It’s done it a few times in the same manner, but it immediately falls back to the 188 range as soon as the t stat opens. In the summer in 90-100 degree temps I run 188 down the road and occasionally at a stop sign it’ll go up to 198 but as soon as you start moving again it falls back to 188. At no time has the temp light ever come on in the gauge cluster. You’ll notice the hood has a rubber seal all around it. I figure that’s to make the entire engine bay like a fan shroud. I also think the fan shrouds they sell were to be added along with the ac kits to enhance the performance in high temps and not so much for cooling the engine. I wouldn’t sweat no shroud unless you have an ac and factory doesn’t put shrouds on those units and even then only if ac performance is lacking at low speeds.
