When I starts my car, the engine temperature indicator on the desktop moves in a middle level within 1 to 2 minute, Why the engine gets hot level within shorter time?
My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It sounds like the cooling system is not performing as it should be. This could be due to a low fluid level, a restriction in the system, or a faulty temperature sensor. I would recommend having the coolant level checked first to make sure that it is full as this would be the most obvious sign of an overheating issue. I would then recommend having the temperature sensor inspected and tested by a qualified mechanic. Once this has been done, if the issue is not found yet, I would recommend having a coolant flush performed to remove any restrictions that may be in the cooling system.
