I just switched out the coolant temperature sensor on my car. The old one had worn out and sprung a leak somehow. And after driving the car for about a minute the temp gauge rose to about halfway. I know this is normal for most cars, but this is something that the car(gauge) had never done before. I know the other sensor might have been failing so it might not have been accurate, but it never did this in the 4 years that I have been driving the car. I am wondering if there might be some sort of air block in the cooling system. Maybe air got in while I was replacing the sensor. If it is an air block how do I get rid of it?
