Acceptable Running temp
I bought a 2002 for Taurus ses3 flex fuel. It had a after
market Temperature gauge installed . With the air
conditioner on I have change the thermostat to I 195
operating from the 190 .My question is this is this
acceptable normal behavior or should I be worried I'm not
losing any water or coolant that I have to replace .Looking
for any advice besides flushing the Radiator .Ccording to
the autozone it has aluminum heads Freaks me out .
If you have a 195 degree thermostat and your aftermarket gauge shows 190 you are fine. If it gets up over 205 then you should be concerned.
What would you suggest I do
Is it running over 205 on the gauge?
Yes during the day
As high as 225
It has to be the water pump right
