Most temp guages use color coding instead of numbers because its less confusing to most generally means operating temps are higher than is reccomended by the manufacturer to run safely.. this should tell you to check the overall systen for issues like low coolant or malfunctioning parts in the system...most guages I have ever seen run close to halfway up most of the time..(except my 92 dodge which stays under a quarter way over unless its parked in heavy traffic then it goes way up and I am forced to turn on the heater in extweme cases..) just to be sure , look over the system or have someone who knows look at it to insure it is fine. otherwise you will need to idle the car in a parked spot and just observe it for about a half hour and see if it overheats or anything...good luck..

What does it mean when the red temperature light starts blinking on my toyota corolla verso. The car is not overheating

If the coolant temp light is on then there is an issue. You don't say on what basis you believe the engine is not overheating but in any event take the car to a mechanic and get an independent temp gauge hooked up to the system to check coolant temperatures.

If the engine is in fact overheating, because the coolant temp is too hot, you will cause expensive engine damage if the cause is not identified and fixed.

A water symbol with a temperature symbol in it what does this mean?

That's the coolant temp gauge of the engine, when it's blue it means the engine is cold, if it turns red the engine is overheating, if it stays off after the blue goes out the temperature is normal.

2000 Chevy Impala - Temperature gauge goes into the red quickly. I had cooling fan assembly replaced 2 months ago because car temperature gauge used to go into the red and sometimes stall.

yea they are right right undo the hoses from the coolant container to to the radiator and the hose from the radiator to the engine and let it all drain out then put it back on and put some new radiator fluid in the radiator until ist full and then put some more in the container for extra make sure to put both hoses back on
