I have a 97 C280 from a private seller. I noticed that the temp gauge always sits above 80 degrees. Is this normal? I have a 94 e320 and it always sits slightly below the 80 degree mark no matter how hot or cold it is. I took it to a couple mechanics one said its normal, the other says its running hot. During idle, I notice the gauge moves up closer too 100 and while driving or it goes back sitting slightly above 80. I had taken the car to flush the radiator and replaced the engine fan, no help. Where does your temp gauge sits? Note the outside temperature reading is 53 degrees on the picture.
