[200q20v] Normal Temp Gauge Reading

What's the "normal" operating range for the water temperature gauge at the
left of the cluster?

If you look on the gauge (from left to right) - it has three close heavy
hash marks, one light one, one heavy one, two light ones, one heavy one, one
light one.  Also, there are two sets of dots.  In order, it looks like: (o =
dot, i = light mark, I = heavy mark)
oIIoI i I i oio I i

In my car (1991 200q wagon) the fan goes on when the temp reaches above the
middle heavy hash mark and the engine cools down before it reaches the next
(light) one.

What is everyone else's experience?


P.S. I agree, the most popular failure of the year is the fusible link.  If
you haven't changed it yet...
