Nononononono... If it were the thermo, he wouldnt have made half way
through a 5 hour trip. It would have overheated long ago. And once it
came back it wouldnt have read 1/2 to 2/3. The temp sensor is on the
head, which would have been red hot if thermo didnt open. My guess is
faulty sending unit or gauge. Probably sending unit.
