Engine coolant temperature gauges are not "linear". It is quite common to see gauges which indicate the same temperature level for the operating temperature range that is deemed "normal". Having said that, you need to understand what the normal operating temperature range is for your vehicle in order to understand if the readout corresponds to normal or ...
