I have a daihatsu charade. Recently, I had the head gasket changed due to overheated engine. I wonder what the prblem is with the temperature indicator since I checked it constantly while driving and I noticed that it didn't even reached the middle. I just noticed it that I overheated the engine after it stopped. WHen I popped the radiator cap open, the engine temp indicator just moved to the red area. ANyone has experienced this also? By the way, the engine overheated because it ran out of water due to a crack in the radiator hose.
