Anyone know how i can find out if my motor is to hot?
It burns your fingers really bad
Just messing with ya man, get a temp gun. Its the only sure fire way. Laser guns are cheap at any auto type supplier.

And if you smell burning your motor is cooking your fingers....peace
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
I have a temp gun, but usually just use the finger test after a run. Now don't try to be a hero and keep your finger one there just to trick yourself into thinking your motor isn't hot. 3+ seconds comfortably is a good rule.
Fingers have notoriously bad calibration. Use an IR temp gun.

It helps for the finger trick if you have someone else's fingerprints on
1st degree burns start at 150 degrees... so its going to feel hot basically at any temp over 110... you need a temp gun as previously stated.
