    Question Temperature Gauge: What position is your needle?

    Hi y'all,

    I have a LTZ approaching 3K miles. The temp gauge needle during normal operations is just shy of the hash before the 1/2 way mark between Cold and Hot.

    Is that your "normal" operating temp? If I was experiencing the issue of Thermostat always open, what would I see on my Temp Gauge?

    Thanks everyone.

    If the TSTAT was always open the car would struggle to warm up and cool off significantly while on the highway or longer cruze.

    On my 1.4L T 6 M/T my gauge stays just to the a whole hash line lower than the middle hash mark.

    Thanks for all the replies. Does anyone have a slight smell of coolant coming from HVAC everyone so often? I check coolant level and it's at the proper level.

    Never noticed any smells. I usually let noises go if they sound non-threatening, but if I smell something funny coming from my car, I usually take it in immediately.

    Also, my needle stays in the same place.
