Hopefully I'm posting this in the correct section!
Last night my boyfriend and I drove to a "neighboring" town to do some shopping - plus to just get out of town for awhile.
On the drive home, we were watching the outside temperature and groaning - it was fluctuating between -3 and -11 degrees F. About half way home, I looked over at the temp gauge and saw the needle wasn't where it usually is. Now I haven't driven in much weather that cold since last winter and I don't remember where the needle would rest at that point. When it's this cold, I usually stay at home, just doing in town driving, with most trips being very short, so the needle never fully makes it to its desired resting location.
The needle - during the summer months - usually rests fairly close to the middle point of the gauge. Last night it was resting more between 1/4 and half. I'm wondering if this is because of the cold and me driving the vehicle at highway speeds. Would that affect that at all?
Thank you in advance!
