Hot engine! or was it?!
So I went to go pick my mom up from work. We are on our way home (about half way) & I look down at my dash like I do every so often to check my gauges. & I see my engine temp just alittle away from the red zone. So I pop the car into nutral kill the motor and turn into a parking lot. I poped the hood & don't see coolant leaking anywhere & the motor didn't feely overly hott. So I let it cool down and then glently drive home watching the temp. It never went above 200 the rest (1.5miles) of the way home. Once home I let the car idle for a little bit too and the gauge didn't go past 200. What does this sound like to everyone else? A bad coolant temp sensor? The outside temp when this happened was about 44 degrees F and I was going about 30mph when I saw the temp gauge.
Although I think this is unrelated to this problem tonight I did change.... My pcv valve, fuel filter, oil/filter, spark plugs today.
