my temperature gauge goes half way..local autozone..error codes

Customer Question

my temperature gauge goes half way up when I start the engine, and goes all the way up after 3-5 minutes. I took the car to the local Autozone and was checked for error codes but were negative. I changed the battery becasue was tested as "BAD" but the problem persist. My car is a Hyundai Tiburon 2003. Please advise

Have you checked your coolant level and it is in the full zone on the overflow bottle? Is your tib. running alright and there is no white smoke coming out of the tailpipe while driving? Let me know, Jim
