Let's see who can post the highest Gauge Cluster Tempature. This picture was taken last July near the Diamond mines in Arkansas....100:flame:degrees.
As you wish! It's hard to appreciate the heat because it's so dry. I typically perspire quite a bit but was dry as a bone hiking around Death Valley. Literally 1 minute after getting back in my air conditioned car, I would be dripping. Get to the next viewpoint, step out of the car and dry off again in 5 minutes flat. I lived in Chicago for 5 years and I'll take the dry heat any time.Great thread! I'd love to see a picture from Death Valley on one of those incredibly hot days.
Arkansas and 100 degrees can FEEL like 130!
Definitely, Started driving and it dropped to 104 F in a matter of seconds. Drove a little more and it evened to the 98 F it should be.Was the engine hot & off when you took this photo? The reason I asked is because of the location of the sensor (in front of the radiator), I've noticed that the sensor will pick up the heat coming off the radiator when the engine is shut down and the fan isn't bathing the sensor in ambient air. The gauge has spooked me a few times as well on re-starts but drops back down to an accurate ambient reading after the engine has been running for a few minutes or you drive off.
