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 102°C 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 102°C for too long....abnormal!?.
BTW, Both 126s never get over 92°C.(Here in Houston, TX we are at 90's daily). They have bigger fans and no cover in front or below.
