Had a new engine installed by the Chevy dealership for my

Customer Question

Had a new engine installed by the Chevy dealership for my 2003 Lesabre. The coolant temperature that it operated at was 192 degrees. It is operating much higher than that now?
JA: How many miles on the car? How has your mileage been lately?
Customer: 103,000 miles and the mileage is about the same.
JA: Are you fixing your LeSabre yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Am thinking about a new radiator and new temperature sensor.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Is this fix necessary? Is it supposed to run that hot when previously it did not? The dealer is acting like everything is fine.

What temperature is it registering now?

Is this the temperature that the cooling fan comes on or just the normal range it is reading when driving?
