TEMPERATURE INDICATOR HAND

Post by POPPY'S WING »



Hello everyone. I changed out my coolant about 2weeks ago.Used the Honda BLUE 50/50. If I remember correctly the temp hand was always on the last mark before halfway.Now it's between the last mark and halfway.I rechecked today to make sure the radiator was full,and it was. Also the reservoir was correct.Can some of you,tell me where your hand stays? Thanks.

Once at operating temp (fans cycling on/off), the needle should be somewhere between 2 needle thickness below the middle mark and the middle mark. Most will lie less then 1 needle mark below the 1/2 mark.

OK. It seems the needle is about 1/2 a mark up than usual. I think it's ok.
