  • Expert Hi,

    Variation of temperature meter does not depend upon gear selection but on engine speed.In all engines thermostat is fitted in cooling system which opens up once temperature of engine goes beyond 82 degree and remains open till temperature falls below 82 degree and hence keep constant circulation of coolent.Sometimes malfunctioning of temperature sensor switch may result in malfunctioning of temperature meter , hence you are requested to get that checked once.

  • The Ford Ikon engine is an advanced one, I somewhat agree with Shiva Shankar that the Thermostat regulates the cooling of the engine. So to sum it up, your engine is working perfectly fine, Until the temp reaches 82 the radiator fan is not on thus coolant does not need cooling, as soon as the temp shoots beyond 82 the radiator fan will kickoff cooling the coolant and your temp guage comes down. So it is pretty normal and sensible too.
