When you say "red hot" do you mean actually glowing? If so, you'd have serious trouble. If you mean only hot to the touch, that's normal - these engines run pretty warm. And yes, the gauge in the center is normal - the OEM temp gauge is a dummy gauge, only meant to show you that it's either cold, overheated, or mainly OK. Use your oil temp gauge as your main indicator - at least it's graded numerically and you can actually see the oil temp.

Overheating


it could very well be a bad gauge. when it shows the engine to be overheated or at the least very hot, check the actual temp at the water outlet where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine. use a non contact thermometer to check the temp so as not to get burned in the process. if the thermometer reads way different than the gauge, the gauge is bad.

Temp gauge goes haywire ,shows low coolant but full,shows extreme temp and accereator stops then gauge goes normal and so does everything else. sometimes it just shuts down when gauge shows extreme...


Make sure the electric fan is working I have a simple fix for that on U Tube. Most of these are caused by the sensor and Then the Ignition will also cause this problem These cares are very Hi Tech but simple to do easy fixes on them.

Temp guage in red' dummie light on engine not hot


Sounds like a faulty sensor, if the actual temp is 195/215. The ICM is processing the information it receives from the sensor and performs accordingly. A complete diagnostic scan would be helpful in determining the proper repairs needed to correct the problem.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
