ye it goes up and down constantly i wouldnt worry about it, id be more concerned if it stopped moving and stayed in the one position!

I found it is more active since i started putting in fully synthetic (5w30) than it ever was on whatever Mr.Toyota used on it's first service.... :?

generally it should be low when the engine is idling and high when your ragging it...

Is yours a turbo? was there an aftermarket gauge stuck in somewhere?

Needle usually stays around 3 below the top mark... lower when i start the car but when its warmed up it stays around there no matter what i'm doin!
