Since we know that versa's/tiida's dont have temperature gauge... i was wondering how can we know if the car is getting heated above normal ?
The red light on dash only comes on when the temperature is critically high.
Lets take this scenario:
Any car normally has constant engine temperature reading after warmup. My dad's civic warmed up to the same temperature for 12 years - wouldnt move a degree no matter what the outside condition/traffic. Only once he had a minor problem, that was when he stopped in traffic, the needle would move up "a noticeable LITTLE", and when the car moved, the needle would go back again. This was in safe levels, however he took the car to a garage, and he said some pump or fan or something is damaged (i was a kid that time), and it was a cheap fix - <$20. And it was rock solid perfect again.
But to determine this issue, he had to see the needle move.
How could we determine if something like this happens to our versa?
We dont have temperature needle
I really want to know where my temperature stands, and how it reacts in traffic, and how it reacts when i rev to 6000 rpm. Also i want to know if my normal temperatures are above normal, then i would change my coolant-water mixture, but where is the neeeeeeeedle !
The red light on dash is for something thats extreme heating, but i want to see if my temperature is normal for day to day operation.
my only problem with the scangauge is its fugly....i would go with this Edge Products| Product
or a regular gauge in a pod
