It shouldn't do anything much before the needle reaches the red section on the gauge. Anything in the "NORMAL" region should be, well, 'normal'. Personally though, I get a little concerned when it goes above half but it's still normal apparently.

Well to be exact the EL's run at optimum Temp between 92 & 95 degrees. Which means normal driving around town etc either Hot or Cold conditions the Temp needle should always hover around the "M" or the "A" give her a bit of schtick and will probably be on the "M" :D Though if driving up a long Hill you will find the Temp needle will sit on the "R" but this will only be a brief time. But generally if she starts sitting around the "R" to long then you got problems with your cooling system.

I've run my auto wagon and a friends auto wagon around with the inst. cluster in diagnostic mode just for testing, and they both seem to sit around 92.5 °C as indicated on the odometer, during normal driving.
