Cooling and rattle question
Hi everybody, i just picked my new compass 2008 4x4 5 speed yesturday, it only 200km's it and i have questions.
#1 What is the position of the needle of the gauge in the dash for nomal operating tempature of the motor? On mine, i noticed coming into work this morning (40 km drive) it's goes a little more then 1 quarter, or lets say a little less then a third of it's travel. Is this normal, does your compass operate the same way? or the needle goes in the center of the gauge at nomal temp.
#2 Reading in other posts, i saw ratlle issue in rear... hitch..
I seem to have a rattle in the rear, metal sound, i would suspect in the tail gate area. I had no time check yet, i will be looking at the license plate, but i was woundering if anyone else could chime in on this.
