You can use none of that now so I suspect that would suggest you're possibly about to be Covid non-compliant. Under Dictator Dans new 4th Reich laws, the local 7-Eleven or Donut Shop owner can arrest you .... have you seen Tom Cruise in Minority Report cause that's kinda how it works. Best to get yourself up to speed before Mr Donut come knocking on your door, before you commit the crime. The future evidence against you, of you maybe doing something wrong, is overwhelming

So long as the engine temp stayed around the 100 or so all should be good, I like the tranny temp around the mid to high 80's, if it has a manual fan fitted let the temp climb to about 80 then flick it on.............. the car should be a lot happier for sure.
