You would be better taking out the thermostat and replacing it as that is the cheapest way first and if its still the same then the gauge but i think its the thermostat by the sound of it.

What is the best temperature to run on

in a car
thermostats open at around 85 C and are fully open around 95 C
the thermostat keeps opening and closing to adjust the coolant flow to maintain an operating temperature of around 87 C- 90 C
if you do not have numbers on the gauge slightly less that half a gauge to half a gauge

My polo 1.4 se's fuel gauge has sat on 3 quarters for 3 days now, not normal with the amount of driving I do daily, what could be causing the problem? It changes a bit when on a slope though

Hi Josh:
I'd start by completely filling the fuel tank.
Since you know how far you usually can go on a full tank, when you have gone about alf that distance, the gauge should show about half a tank, and when you've gone just over 3/4 of that distance, the gauge should be starting to show on the low side.
At least, if you know that the gauge is not reading correctly, you won't run out of gas if you keep track of the distance and always fill the tank completely.
Hope this helps.

Temp gauge stays cold

If the thermostat is bad (i.e. stuck open at all times), this would allow coolant to circulate in the engine even when it is below the desired operating temperature. This leads to OVERcooling of the engine. You can either replace the thermostat as a first step or remove it and test it -- closed when cold, open when heated above 190-200F.

2001 subaru forester. overheat problems. changed head gaskets, water pump kit (comes with all pulleys and new belt.

make sure the pump it turning. Also be sure your thermostat is not isntalled upside down. That happens you know. Check the waterlevel on your car. be sure your fan is kicking on as the engine heats up. There should be a temp sensor to make it turn on. I think this model has a heaater bypass too to check on which runs the heater around the engine to let it heat up faster.. might check that too. I would check on the backward thermostat forst though.

Thermofans don't kick in, but temperature seems ok

Hello... You should not be concerned... This is normal... Also, normally you should not hear the thermostat. But the Fans don't normally turn on until about 100 degrees centigrade....

Good Luck
