WHAT IS THE NORMAL POSITION FOR THE ENGINE TEMPERATURE GAUGE. THE NEEDLE FOR MY FORD EDGE 2007 SEL 2WD STAYS IN THE MIDDLE SHORTLY AFTER I START THE CAR.
When I start my car in the morning or anytime when the engine is off for long
hours, the temperature gauge is at Cold (C). after i start driving for about a 2
to 4 minutes, the temperature gauge rises to the middle of C and H ends. I
am concerned at the weather conditions here in Saudi Arabia during summers
are very harsh. Please advise.
Where the gauge is in the picture is where it should be. Straight up in the center of the gauge. It may creep up some if you're stuck in traffic with the air conditioning on. But generally speaking it should be straight up. HTH. -Jim
Thank you dear for your kind and prompt response. Your answer helped me to calm my concern. Is it something to be freaked out about or is it normal for the gauge as in the picture? Sorry to carry on the conversation but I dont want to end up in the middle of the road with a busted car while the temperature outside is 131*F.
You're welcome. Glad to help. No, you're fine with the gauge in that position. HTH. -Jim
