Any abnormal steam, sounds, smells or car actions(other than gauge)? If they wont fix it i say pound it long n hard and when they have to replace the engine you can say..."I told you there was a problem".
That is my whole thought process. I've had my share of clunkers that overheated. This is not exhibiting any of those traits. That's why I just keep driving like nothing is happening. It is very worrying though.
