MY TEMP GAUGE USUALLY STAYS EITHER AT 12 0'CLOCK POSITION OR 1 LINE BELOW.  ANY THOUGHTS ANYONE? I'VE GOT THE 3.8 NON SUPERCHARGED ENGINE ON A 2005 MONTE CARLO LT. THANKS

Check for coolant leaks and check the coolant level. Maybe you can't see it but the stick could have made a small hole in something.
