My 91 300D's temp was like that too! both fans should work together at low/high speed. 2 weeks ago, I removed the engine/tranny insulation panels. I also took the fan/condenser protection cover off. You can't believe how much junks were collected in that area over 11 years. It's snapped on and completely sealed around the condenser. I end up cutting the bottom half of it and installed it back so that nothing can collect in there. Now, It runs a lot cooler then before. Sometime it will get up to 102C but it doestn't stay there for long. I would advice you guys remove that panel and clean that area up.
I would think that temp range is normal. If it stays high above 102C for too long....abnormal!?.

BTW, Both 126s never get over 92C.(Here in Houston, TX we are at 90's daily). They have bigger fans and no cover in front or below.
