I searched and didn't find another thread about this topic.

Considering temperatures are going down to freezing overnight, I was surprised to see my temp guage was at one bar at start up. I hadn't driven the vehicle for 13 hours.

Has anybody else experienced anything similar?

Mine is always at one bar at startup. Also in Southern Ont.... guess it's just programmed that way.

Web it's cold I usually let the engine warm up a bit before driving. I suppose I will need to wait until I see bar # 2.

Same, 1 bar at start, then goes up to 1 bar before center then just sits there.
Has anyone ever seen it higher? Perhaps pulling trailer, etc.?

I have a secondary indicator and alarm and also OBD data that showed 110 Celsius while climbing hills in 40 degree (Celsius) weather during trip to Great Basin National Park.

My dash gauge never moved. Nothing boiled over, etc. but I had expected to see some change on the dash gauge.

Guys,

OF COURSE it's gonna be at one bar at start up. The car doesn't magically "get warm" the second you start the engine. And for the record, cranking the heat in the cabin to full doesn't help. The heat escapes the engine too quickly for it to reach normal running temps in 5 mins. It's pure logic

OF COURSE???
I expected no bars when cold. When the gas tank is empty there are no bars, I thought there might be some continuity.

I know what you were getting at when you asked this... and it does make sense that it would be "no bars" at a cold start up... but so be it.

I thought the last bar blinks??


Anyways...
Only the last bar blinks on the fuel gauge when you get really low.

I know, but he's saying when it's empty there are none, I'm almost postive that this is false even if the connection is unplugged at pump, it still blinks.
