Re: Is this normal temperature gauge reading?
Wish they'd put the numbers on the scale. I know it's not 'necessary' - all you need to know is what's 'normal' for your car, but it's still nice to have a good idea what the actual number is.
My '02 Impala has the numbers on its scale: (140 to 260). Mid-scale is therefore 200 degrees, and each line works out to 7.5 degrees. The needle is normally just to the left of mid-scale, or about 190-ish degrees.
