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?

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?

hey theere bro hows it goin in response to your question about the prop rod. 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.:cool:
