    Am I right or wrong in thinking my 2.4 I-VTEC like most cars when fully warm the bar should be directly in the middle because it seems to be below the middle which I tend to find means on most cars either a Thermostat not working properly or possibly a temp sensor?

    That is perfectly normal bud, this has been asked so many times in various threads so it does it lost in the blurb.

    Nothing to be worried about your car is at it optimal working temperature, even if you cane your car and give it a thrashing with the aircon on it will not budge for that position :Wink:

    Just fire away whatever you might need answering and enjoy VTEC singing on your new car.

    yea mine is the same, in my old hondas it always sat just over 1/3 of the way up, so i initially thought this was sitting too high as it was quite near the middle lol!
