Temp Gage Question - Opinions?
I have an 04 Wee that just turned over 27k miles. Had it less than a year and so far it runs perfectly.
Last weekend I took a 230 mile trip to upstate NY. The temp was about 40 deg. F.
Fully warmed up and running at highway speeds I noticed that the temp. gage was alternating between 2 and 3 bars. Normally I was seeing 3 bars solid after warm up although this was at higher ambient temps. and/or lower speeds.
Is 2 to 3 bars normal at lower ambient temps and higher speeds?
Don't know much about the Wee cooling system but I assume temp is regulated by a typical thermostat set up. If so, running a bit cooler could indicate a thermostat that is not closing properly.
