Question on temp gauge, 96 Roadmaster Wagon


Retired member
Bought a wagon, 116k miles. Has the LT1 motor. Coolant gauge usually reads under the 1/2 mark and goes all the way to the right (hot) when I shut the car off. Wondering if it could be the coolant temperature sender? It's only $15. Here is a pic. Thanks!

I have a 1996 sedan the same color, I think what you are describing is normal behavior. I'll double check when I get home as I'm not driving that car today. Your car isn't actually getting hot correct?
