Check that the radiator fan is switching on and off regularly when the car is idling stationary and hot. If not then there could be a fault with the fan or thermoswitch. Make sure the radiator is not becoming clogged with insects/leaves/small children. Dont use tap water in the coolant, it can coat the waterways with limescale reducing cooling efficiency. Use de-ionized. Or suspect the thermostat, they are quite cheap so rather than gettting it out and testing it on the stove in a pan of hot water just replace it with a new one. Make sure there isn't an airlock in the heater matrix, put the heating on full and make sure it's blowing nice and warm. Of course it could just be a fault with the temp. gauge or sender, you'd need to remove the sender and place it in some nearly boiling water and look at the gauge. Good luck.

Temp. gauge don't move past half on 1996 VW Jetta

Sounds normal. If the gauge moved further over, it would indicate an overheating problem, wouldn't it? Check that engine is at normal operating temperature after it warms up. If it is running too cold, your thermostat might be stuck open.

Runing at the middle of the temp gauge is normal, If a vehicles temp gauge needle goes into the red zone on the gauge or into the hot zone as far as the needle will go .then you start worrying. Middle position is (NormaL for most (Vehicles) You have nothing to worry about.

Auto coolant hot temp light comes on and temp gauge goes up more when idling at a light

If temp gauge is going into the red on a 3.4 engine it must be shut down or head damage can happen within minutes. I have a Monte Carlo that was overheating. I changed everything, thermostat, water pump, belt tensioner, radiator, all with no result. It would start out okay on a cold start but then I would come to a red light and the temp would creep up. Higher and higher until it neared the red zone. The heat would run cold. Most of the time, as soon as it was about to touch the red it would start to drop, the heat would blow hot again and all seemed okay but not for long. This would get worse and worse until the red hot light came on and I found myself on the side of the thruway. This problem is a blown head gasket. I had no other obvious signs, no white smoke from the exhaust, no oil in the antifreeze. I even changed the intake gaskets. Head gasket issues are common on the 3.4 liter engines.

1997 Chevrolet 2500 PU Temp gauge shows hot but no leaks and engine does not seem to be overheating

Be sure the fan belt is not slipping and if it is tight then you might want to change the temp. sw. also check the wire to the temp sw. and make sure it is not shorting out on the engine. In addition, the gauge maybe miss reading but it don't sound likely from your post.

make sure that the coils, ( the ac radiator ) are clean , blow them out with an air hose if you can get a hold of one, also, make sure the ac fan is coming on, it may start , but the sensor may be bad allowing it to turn off too soon , a normal rise in heat is expected when using the AC but if it is too hot you should feel the motor start to run rough, if its running fine, and the temp does move back to normal when the ac is turned off, and a qualified mechanic has checked it, your probably ok, you could have a sensitive gauge, , If the normal range of the gauge moves to hot and back during normal driving without the ac on, that would show the thermostat is also working
