Temperature gauge (models with type A combination meter)

1) Normal operating range

1) Normal operating range

The temperature gauge shows engine coolant temperature when the ignition switch is in the ON position.

The coolant temperature will vary in accordance with the outside temperature and driving conditions.

We recommend that you drive moderately until the pointer of the temperature gauge reaches near the middle of the range.

Engine operation is optimum with the engine coolant at this temperature range and high revving operation when the engine is not warmed up enough should be avoided.

If the pointer exceeds the normal

If the pointer exceeds the normal operating range, safely stop the vehicle as soon as possible.

Refer to Engine overheating.
