The other day I was standing outside talking to a friend while my car was running. I leaned up against my car and about burned my booty off! I took a look at the temp guage inside my car and it was very slight (maybe a needles width) above the exact center line. I popped my hood and EVERYTHING under the bonnet was too hot to touch. You could feel the heat coming out from a couple feet away. I checked my coolant level and it was right at the "minimum" mark in the overflow tank (I didn't see any "maximum" line marking. I drove home and popped the hood. Waited a good 30 minutes and everything was still quite warm and the engine itself was still so hot that I could only touch it for a second or two. I touched the hoses connected to the radiator and found something interesting. The top part of my lower radiator hose was still pretty toasty, but just below the little clamp that holds the hose in place about midway down it, it wasn't even hardly warm. The farther down I followed that hose, the cooler it got. Could my engine be overheating but the temp on the dash guage read OK? Maybe a stuck thermostat?
