temperature gauge 1 level above the middle? is this normal?
good day, my girlfriend has a 2007 pontiac g6 sedan, 60,000k. 3 days ago i noticed her temperature gauge was slightly above the midway point. I'm not familiar with pontiac's and my Acura is always 2 notches below the middle. I think most cars are slightly below the middle notch. She says she's never paid much attention but doesn't think she's ever saw it up that high. I work long hours, but i asked her to get it checked. I personally checked her fluids and all, everything was fine, didn't notice any leaks or anything. The car has 60,000k on it and looks great. She took it the a shop and they told her nothing is wrong. She took it to pep boys. I told her that doesn't sound right. Her gauge has been over the middle notch for 3 days now. It hasn't went any higher but to me that does not sound right. She hasn't been doing alot of driving. She said the guy at pep boys said her thermostat, fan and everything was alright. I thought i guy told me you can't check the thermostat? Anyways i don't know what's going on? Any advice? is this really normal for the cars temperature gauge to be a notch above the middle? I always look for these things but i guess she doesn't. But, her oil is good, she just had that changed 3 weeks ago. Thanks for the advice and help.
