Just got this car from the Father In Law, traded in my Intrepid which we couldnt get fixed for over 4 months.

Anyway, on the way to work today I had no problems driving, but I am wondering, where on the gauge normal operating temp is.

Mine never got to the middle tick mark which would be at a 45 degree angle. Always about half a tick below that halfway mark.

Anyone else able to confirm if this is where the needle should be resting at?

That should be alright considering outside temps. It should barely hit halfway before the highspeed fan comes on.

Thanks, still getting used to this one after trading in the Trep. I am amazed at how similar the cars are, the engine is exactly the same as far as I can tell. But my temp never gets all the way to the 4th tick which is half way. It never gets half way between the 3rd and 4th marks even with the AC running it appears. Oh, and since it has never been wrecked, a much MUCH smoother ride! It just isnt as snappy as the trep. But hey, at least I wont die sitting at a drive through or stuck at a light anymore! :D
