Cant figure this out. When I am idling in gear at a light temp guage goes to lower 1/4 of guage. When I start driving, even slowly (or fast) the temp climbs to upper 1/4 or even 1/8 of guage. It even pins itself hot sometimes, but goes down as soon as I stop moving. This is the opposite of the cooling problems from old beaters in the past. I believe (because of underhood heat) that the guage is ok, and the timing seems fine. Starts and idles and accelerates fine. But when this temp guage pins (often when I just slow down) it will start steaming and pissing if It doesnt fix that situation by stopping immediately or it dropping a little by driving again. It just boggles me. And I'm straight and dont like to be boggled.
