Did you not read any of the threads talking about this?
as above, use an IR thermometer on thermostat housing to eval ACTUAL temp and correlate to the gauge. the needle will not always be deadlocked on 9pm, actual temps vary slightly.

Short answer, the red zone is bad, below that, relax.

Great rela life demonstration what frustrated Volvo enough to make the faker a thing
My compensator was causing the reading to be right under the red constantly, so I removed it, and I tried searching threads and all I could find it stuff on what to replace for a hot car. And I understand there's been many questions on this sort of topic, but, and not trying to be mean or sarcastic, do you really expect there to be a whole set of new content/threads everyday on this site?
