Let me rephrase that question so that you may answer the question that I'm trying to ask.
I was having a problem with my electric radiator fans and my car never actually overheated. It never boiled over, never blew a hose. But as I was driving on the freeway the temperature gauge(the analog needle, factory gauge) started reading hot(a little over center mark and moving hotter) so I turned on the factory digital LCD temp gauge and it was reading 221 f which is fine and then the needle went almost to the red zone before I could pull off the road. The digital went to 230 f but the car wasnt over heating so I let it cool down and continued driving with the OBD2 reader on also. It (OBD2) started to read almost 250 f but the needle was barely over center and the digital factory was reading 218 f and again no boil over no coolant blowing into or being sucked out of the overflow tank.
So, now, which gauge do I believe. Granted the motor was hot but I live in Los Angeles and it was about 77 f and I was driving my car harder than just average driving.
But which do I believe?
