2001 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75,000 miles
I put roughly 350 miles on my car per week. It has been running great, but all of a sudden, the coolant gauge will not go higher than the blue " C" section. It will go between the blue section and the notch above that if the car sits for a while, but when moving (especially on the highway), the gauge goes back down.
At first, I thought it was a bad sensor for that gauge, but when turning my heat on, the full blast heat is merely lukewarm and I can feel the temperature of my heater drop in conjunction with the temperature gauge. The car just went through a cold brutal NE Ohio winter with absolutely no problems.
Is it even bad for the car to run that cold? I guess it's better than overheating, but something isn't working properly nonetheless.
