Okay is it normal for the temp gauge to act funny when its cold. I maybe drove for 10 minutes to my house and it was on the L and as soon as turned the corner and went down to O its seem flucutuate a lot but only when its like it like 30 or 40 degrees if that matters

as long as it is in the bracket stating normal, it is ok. My 91 would almost get to H before the cooling fan kicked on, and then would drop to N before shutting off. Scared the crap out of me the first time I got stuck in airport traffic.

I've had some trouble with my Gauge too, I just replaced the thermostat. My problem was when I was sitting in park with the car running, or waiting at a red light for a while, the temp would drastically climb and get almost to the H and i'd have to blow hot as hell air to cool it off.

Replacing the Thermostat and gasket fixed it. Also, the thermostat was causing my radiator hose to collapse(implode) every time I shut the car off, so it definitely needed a replacement.

My temp gauge did the same thing. I would check the thermostat, because after a little while, my gauge completely stopped working. Next thing I know, I'm buying a new engine because my thermo was busted into 4 pieces. Also make sure that you're running fresh antifreeze in the winter.
