I am having a issue with the tempture guage at first it was always at Hot even when I first turn the car on but the car has never overheated, but now the tempture guage is where it should be in the middle why would it start at hot when you turn the key and stay there. Also having problem with floor on driver side and behind driver floor is wet.

Hi queenbee50,

The inaccurate temperature gauge could be due to a faulty sensor, gauge or bad ground circuit connections for the gauge. Testing is required to locate the source.

For the driver side to be wet all over, the most likely cause would be a leak somewhere, either from the windshields, doors or body. You would have to perform a water leak test to find the cause.
