    "great" and "normal" are not data terms and you need to have someone that knows what they are doing look at your system.

    There are many reasons for varying temperature differentials that only proper temperature and pressure readings are going to indicate the cause of. Your post does not touch on any of the pertinent information that is needed to determine a systems status.
