Wj Cooling Question?

Today It was 90 degrees and It rain fine but when I turned It off and came back I noticed the temp gauge was a little high red line on pic but as soon as I started It Up It went a little under 210 like normal anti-freeze at full new air filter.

That sounds to me like it was just heat soak, very normal. The engine is still very hot when you shut it down and when the water stops flowing it just sits there and warms up.

Clearly it's too early because I was staring that that picture thinking, what it the world is up with your temperature gauge - a black needle AND a red one?!

I'm an idiot.

Do you have any issues with the cooling system while the engine is running?
