It depends on the setpoint of the thermostat.
175 to 225 deg F
It goes up while driving and down when you're idle....that's normal
The 1999 Cadillac normal coolant temperature gauge reading should be 180 degrees. A 195 degrees thermostat could be used, causing the temperature gauge to read 195.
Sounds like it could be a bad thermostat - not closing to allow engine to heat to normal operating temperature
It will usually run with a gauge temperature of around 200-210 degrees.
mine stays just a quarter inch below midway all the time at normal temp
should be 195 to 210 normal operating temp
If the temperature gauge is not working, one thing it could be besides the gauge itself is a blown fuse. Another possibility is a loose or broken wire on the gauge.Ê
i just put in a new radiator and now temperature gauge reads high but their are no leaks
at the beginning it will be cold, but it will warm up as you start driving
Usually the gauge in on the dashboard with all the other gauges. That way you can read it while driving.
We replaced the temperature gauge in my 1991 Chevy blazer what is the normal operating temp?
That's a classic symptom of a sticking thermostat.
It is not normal, but it is not a major problem. If the issue is only the lack of lighting on the gauge, the bulb can be replaced and that should fix it.
195 to 210 what temperature thermostat do you have
If the gauge is reading hot and the car is running normal temperatures, the water temperature sensor needs replaced.
If you have been driving the car for some time, you should have noticed on many occasions that the needle on the temp gauge rises to a certain place and usually stays right there. If the needle, in normal driving, is rising higher than it used to, and staying there, you do need to get that checked out, yes, because that obviously isn't "normal".
Below the middle mark. if you have not removed the battery and the needles poped past the stops. this willmove the temp gauge and place it at a higher reading. replace dash to correct this.
Center of gauge. 180-220 FCenter of gauge. 180-220 F
Yes it can depending on driving conditions.
I would like to know this currently, but mine sets around 90 degrees Celsius on average (while driving for awhile) I'm not sure if that's high, but it's half way on the temperature gauge.
you are low on coolent, the heater core is the highest point and therefore full of air and not fluid
well your car needs a new body kit because that contributes to the temperature of the car
Well, my gauge usually sit right about the middle.
Its the same as most cars.. Just under half way on the gauge.
