engine temps

My 1.6l 200sx gets so hot sometimes that the engine prop rod is too hot to touch. Is this normal? My water temp gauge is about halfway.... I have never had a 4 cyl before (only v-6, flat-6, and v-8) and I am not sure if these engines are just naturally hotter or what the hell the deal is..... I have a 4 year 48k mile powertrain warranty... I hope nothing is damaged that this 'powertrain' warranty wouldn't cover. Any idea's/suggestions?

my 200sx temp gauge sits at about half high i wouldnt worry unless it goes up to about 3/4.

95 200sx timing advanced to 15*, custom cai, Stromung exaust (no cat), b&m short throw shifter, rusted out fenders, worn suspension, creaking balljoints, cracked windshield and bad cv axles. your regular hooptie that requires 92 octane.

but what about the engine prop rod getting so hot (heat from the engine) that you cant touch it?!? That's my main concern..... is that a design flaw?

Yes mine gets that hot as well, i know cause my starter died the other day and when i went to prop the hood up the rod was hotter then heck. a few foul words escaped me that day but i wouldnt worry my car runs fine and hasnt had any heat problems.
