Why would the temperature gauge be running hotter than usual?

Your cooling system may be malfunctioning. When was the last time you flushed the system. Or, your motor may be running lean. Have you noticed a decrease in power since this happened?

1. If the engine is running hotter than usual. 2. If the vehicle's temperature gauge is showing the low. 3. If upon inspection you see an open thermostat valve Symptoms like these likely indicate you need a new thermostat

It would definitely be hotter, and drier, in Alice Springs.

Have you noticed your engine temperature gauge running cooler than usual ? The thermostat for your engine cooling system could be sticking open

Asia is huge. There is no overall usual temperature.

add water to the radiator. believe that. if there is no water flowing through the engine, your heater will only blow cold air. if there is no water flowing through the engine and your heater is only blowing cold air, and not HEATING, your heater core is probably going out or will be soon. most people believe that if you have no water in the engine then your temperature gauge will run hot and you will know that you are overheating the engine. WRONG! your temp gauge only measures WATER temp. But if there is no water to measure, there is no temperature rise showing on the dashboard gauge. if you have NO WATER in the engine you can seriously overheat your engine and not know it because the gauge is not getting any hotter than usual (sometimes your gauge will even read cooler than usual).

It depends on several different factors ... ... ... 1. Is you engine hotter than usual to the touch? 2. Have you recently changed the coolant? 3. How hard do you drive your car ona scale 1 to 10 and 4. Yes a fautly temp sensor can make it seem like it is running hotter

You have a 2 speed fan. If it is running on high then your cooling system is hotter than it should be.

In cold weather, you'll notice that the engine temperature gauge registers only slightly or not at all, particularly if you're driving at highway speeds. You'll also notice that the temperature of your passenger compartment heater isn't nearly as warm as usual. Your car will show a temperature if you allow it to idle for several minutes. The heat flowing into the passenger compartment will be warm as usual. If your thermostat is open, the engine will rarely warm to a level you're used to seeing on the temperature gauge.

The usual temperature of a healthy person is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are sick, then either your body temperature is higher or lower than that. If your body temperature is higher than that, then you have a fever.

the hotter/more energy the particles have the more they will be moving/vibrating.Since the "hot" particles have a lot of energy, they will be moving all over the place, therefore diffusion will be able to happen faster than usual.

The usual state of oxygen and hydrogen: they are gases at room temperature.

I don't think they sense your sickness exactly, but they might notice that you smell a bit differently, that you move more slowly or are weaker than usual, that you make sneezing and coughing noises when you normally don't, and that your body temperature is hotter than usual. They don't know you are sick, they only know that you are different.

that's a healthy body temperature that's my family's usual body temperature you have nothing to worry about

Usually about the same as the day before !

Smoking marijuana can increase your metabolic rate, which will make you feel hotter than usual.

I'm pretty sure being in water that is too hot or too cold can kill them. but when its hotter or colder than usual, they simply have a harder time moving around. their body movement slows down.

37.0 degrees Celsius is the usual body temperature.
