    Use an infrared non contact thermometer aimed at the thermostat housing. Your instrument panel gauge is inaccurate. The operating temperature ranges between 190-240'F

    As new, your Crosswind gauge reads a little below half. As they get older, the readings creep up to just over half. If it stays steady there, I wouldn't worry too much, as jick says, the gauge isn't that accurate... but if it fluctuates, have the system checked out.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Read its owners manual.

    Most engines, including the 4JA-1, has an operating temp of about 95-105C (200-220F). If you follow Jick's advice, you should be able to confirm this using a gun-type IR thermometer pointed at the thermostat housing while the engine is at its hottest state (ie. after a reasonably long drive).

    The way to work with IR thermometers is to keep pressing on the trigger while pointing it at different parts of the thermostat housing. Get the highest reading as that would be nearest to the actual coolant temp.

    Where will this guy be getting a gun type IR thermometer?
    I agree that it is normal if it just above the half mark since your thermostat is old already.

    Half a dozen results on OLX alone.

    It's an escalation that he can explore if he really wants to validate that the coolant temps are indeed normal, and all he's having is an instrumentation problem.

    i trust my thermostats. none of mine, over the decades, has yet lied me.

    at the same temp... an old thermostat goes above the halfway mark, while a new thermostat goes just below the halfway mark...???!!!
    i would suspect first, the cooling system...
    but this is just me...
