I recently bought it used. 119k miles. My concern with this car is that it doesn't warm up to operating temperature. I know on my Mom's camry the needle is always dead in the middle, or somewhere extremely close to it. My Solara V6 temp needle stays at about 1/4 and takes forever to get to that point. I took it to the guy I bought it from (who also has mechanics garage) he says the thermostat is fine. I don't buy it. I think the thermostat is stuck in the open position. The highest ive seen the needle go was slightly below halfway. This was in freeway traffic. What are your guys thoughts? Is the needle at 1/4 normal? I don't think it is. If its not the thermostat, what else could prevent the car from warming up?

it can be the sensor itself. did you get that checked?
ive had this problem before and it was the your mechanic can be wrong, just change it and if that doesnt help just return the part for a refund? :dunno:
