  1. issue with temp gauge. stays at 130 while running but when not it reads temp

    5.0L Tech
    Just like what my title says while car is running the temp gauge moves to a lil bit above 130 but when I turn the car off the gauge then reads at the middle of the temp gauge like it's suppose to. Any ideas why it works with car off but not when car is running?
