I just recently purchased a 97 Wrangler and I've noticed that after I drive for about 15-20 minutes or so the engine and flooring is really unusually hot. The gauge is reading at 210 and has never went above. I've checked the fluid and everything is good and it doesn't look gunky or real dirty. Everything that you usually check when you think your vehicle is overheating is adding up here and I can't seem to figure it out. I'm not very mechanically inclined so any help would be appreciated much! Thanks!!

Check engine light is on but thermostat reads 210 constantly unless it hasn't been running for a while. I haven't checked for codes yet. Around the shifter it gets real hot and you can feel the hood after about a 20 minute drive and its hot. I'm trying to simplify things down so that I don't spend an arm and a leg experimenting with parts.

She is probably running rich which builds a lot if extra heat in the cat.

Got the light checked. O2 sensor is out and catalytic converter is bad. Thanks for the advice
