    These gauges are becoming the norm. People freak out if they see gauges move around a lot so its in most companies best interest to take an average over the past whatever time interval. It also prevents the gas gauge from moving around during braking and cornering. Its just meant for you to glance at and get a quick reading.

    If you want to see the ACTUAL numbers get a bluetooth OBDII adapter and get an application on Android or Iphone to read these numbers (I suggest Torque on Android).

    AZ- I also have mine serviced there, the Eric's are my advisors. Have you mentioned it to your advisor? I have contacts there as well as Berge - if I can be of assistance please let me know.

    Hi All,

    I just noticed this morning that after the installation of my new drive belt and crankshaft pulley, the engine temperature gauge is always in the middle. Never tried overheating while driving under the scorching heat but should I be worried? Do I need to perform coolant flushing or something might be broken?

    It's fine. It tends to hang there somewhat lazily if the car is at the full-warm point. Worry if you start seeing it escalate upward further.

    That's right where mine runs when my Explorer is all warmed up.
