Temperature gauge position?

Post by Warrior »

I was always led to believe that the temperature gauge needle should, on reaching full operating temperature, sit perfectly vertical at 12 o'clock.

Mine used to and does eventually get there but sits at 11.55 for what feels like 2 or 3 times longer than before.

Anything to worry about?

mine sits straight up and down, it used to take while to get there until I changed the thermostat.
