Hi All,

Took a trip to Penrith yesterday afternoon and I noticed the temperature guage was sitting on "o" in normal. When driving around town it sits between "r" & "m"

I have recently changed the coolant and replaced the water pump.

Does anyone have any idea? As I know nothing about cars

Thanks

John.
