Do you live in an extremely cold region? In my opinion, general operating temp is over 200 degress f, that may depend on your vehicle? I don't know your year--make--model?
You could have a thermostat issue, stuck open. Are you heater hoses hot? Another possible issue, temp door under the dash may have a problem?
I need more info.

No prob! Change the upper rad hose! I know this sounds rather silly, but the hose will get 'sucked' flat at a steady high speed. Treat your van to a wash an wax, plenty years left in it! Frankster016

With vehicle cold I put it in gear and go maybe 100' and temp gauge is topped out. When I stop the temp returns to normal in 3 seconds.


the temp gauge sends the power from the gauge to the sender unit which is a variable ground. That means that as the coolant heats up , the resistance in the sender is decreased and the current through the gage increases ans so the needle goes up
when that wire is shorting out some where the gauge will go to hot and when that short is removed the needle comes back down to cold
so that means that you will need to trace the wire along for where it is rubbed through or get an accredited auto electrician in to find the fault

1996 jeep cherokee temp gauge reads hot 10 mins. after start-up


If you have a viscous fan hub then have it replaced as it is not drawing air through the radiator at idle or slow speed (crawling traffic). Check that are no air locks in the system as they will cause heating problems.

Cefiro '97 2,5L over-heating. I bought this car yesterday and drove it home 200kms away. At about 150km the temp gauge showed high temp and I stopped for the night. This morning the radiator was


This may be an electrical issue in the dash and a phantom problem. I would suggest measuring the water temperature in the radiator to see if it matches the guage (normal temperature should be around 90decC. Higher revs would increase water flow via the water pump not lower it so I am thinking some kind of restriction - check your radiator fins are not blocked there could be blockages in the radiator or less likely in the block valleys, other things to check are that your hoses are in good condition and they don't flatten with heat. A faulty thermostat is also possible.
