I don't agree entirely with Dwight.

I do agree that you can't tell the coolant temperature from the temperature gauge (unless you've calibrated it). But I can't agree with his statement that if your coolant isn't boiling or running out the overflow, you don't have an overheating situation.

If your cooling system temperature is much (10-15 degrees or so) higher than your thermostat rating in a non-stressful driving situation, your cooling system is not functioning to it's original capacity, i.e. you're overheating.
