    Folks,

    Let me start with saying that this is not at all an issue (unless you feel so) but more of an observation. Of late I am observing that the coolant needle always dips a little bit to the cold side of the dial inspite of having crusing 170 kms ride on highway or 20 kms drive in bumper to bumper traffic. I am wondering is it really that the engine is running cooler or the dial has lost any calibration.

    Minor inaccuracies will be there. Which is fine IMO. Keep an eye on coolant temp. Get the coolant levels and piping etc. checked.

    Get the coolant level checked. Visit a service centre and get it checked with them.

    Thanks asimpleson and dhruv. The coolant level is about right and had been same for several months. As you pointed it may be some inaccuracy somewhere but till it causes any issue I am okay not visiting service centre. Because the more I visit them the more issues starts surfacing (some surely caused by few inexperienced mechanics).

    Happens to me as well on my Punto MJD. Usually at a signal if idling for some time. Or if driving at lower rpms. When I press the accelerator the needle climbs up again. I don't think there's any problem here.

    Good to know that I am not alone and agree that it certainly isn't an issue. But I started noticing it only recently. All these years the needle never moved even a notch on either side once on middle.
