Hi, I just purchased the 96 bird listed under my username, and I wanted to know what you all thought of this odd behavior of the temperature gauge. It takes quite a long while to show it getting to temperature, but when it finally reaches the N in NORM it slightly moves down behind the N, then back up to it and does this constantly for the remaining time that I drive it. It never shows it overheating, and there is no evidence of the head gasket being blown. I just wonder if it is a trait caused by the car's past. It was my grandmother's car, and she was never much of a driving person, but had no choice but to drive herself places once my grandfather passed away in 2001. She never drove it more than 1-3 miles(one way) from her house so I doubt the car reached full operating temperature for a good percentage of its drives. The last 10k miles were put on it this way. The car still puts out good heat quickly when I take it out from a cold start, so is this even worth looking into?
