i have found out you can only trust the engine overheat message

i miss the old times of eaw where i guy would run away from you trying to break your engine and you would have to pay attention to the temperature gauge

Don't only rely on the engine temperature gauge, there is also the oil pressure gauge, coolant gauge and radiator settings. I rely mostly on the oil pressure gauge since oil pressure goes up as the engine heats up but compare it with the others to get the general condition of the engine.

I wish I could get rid of that "Engine Overheat" message but stuck with it since there's no indication of radiator settings.
