Temp Gauge Not showing high temps
This may or may not be an issue on my 2012 Equinox, 2.4l, but engine temp gauge will rise normally to operating temps, and stop at the 7 o'clock position. It does not change from that point (175F to 225F). I would think it would at least move to the 6 o'clock position when it reaches 210F. I have an Ultra Gauge and it reads what the ECM is reporting from the coolant sensor.
Is this a normal reading? Anyone else see their gauge read higher in hot, stop and go traffic. I blew a head gasket on my chevy van in the past because the temp gauge acted in a similar manner, did not report high coolant temps.
