Engine Cooling problem
1998 Cadillac Deville V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 45995 miles

Engine cooling temperatured is running from 220- 238 degrees. Water pump and thermostat appear to be working. There is no cooland loss, however engine smells hot when you turn it off. Acouple of times I have noticed the cooling fans a running after engine was turned off. What should the normal operating temperature be for this vehicle. I live in S. Florida where daytime temperatures are in the low 90's.

195-210 would be the range. Has the thermostat been replaced? Also a radiator that has lost 10 to20% of it's cooling efficency can bump temp up 30 degrees. Check for debris on condensor and rad.
