TEMPERATURE GAUGE

2001 Subaru Outback

Engine Cooling problem
2001 Subaru Outback 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

While driving about 30 miles my temperature gauge will spike to hot for a minute or two then go back to normal. But the motor does not seem to be overheating.

It may be a faulty engine coolant temp sensor, or the thermostat is having a hard time opening. Have you checked the coolant level?
