    Does it happen with the vehicle at a standstill and depressing the brake pedal or when coming to a stop / Reversing out of your driveway?

    Re: Amarok Temperature gauge

    Most likely cause is thermostat is stuck open. I would start at replacing the thermostat

    Could also worsen fuel consumption, adds more fuel to get the engine warmed up to operating temp.
