avalon temperature guage goes slight down

Asked by Jul 26, 2016 at 03:41 PM about the 1999 Toyota Avalon 4 Dr XL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 Toyota avalon.  Works great.  Recently, i observed that
temperature guage slightly goes down when it is on a freeway.  I do feel as if i
need to push more on throttle to get the same speed.  It is almost as if it is
loosing power.  Upon coll down or when i part the car, it recovers.  Anyone
know what's going on?  I do not turn on the A/C in my car.

it should go down when you are at highway speeds...the cooler the outside temp the gauge will go down a few degrees...I think everything is ok....

joemon, thanks! I do feel loss of power. I need to push pedal more to keep up the speed. This was not the case earlier. Thoughts?
