Temperature gage not rising

Asked by Apr 30, 2017 at 05:52 PM about the 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL SuperCab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The temperature gage on my dash barely rises when I'm
driving down the freeway,  It will rise a little in town maybe
about a 1/4 of the way... recently did a coolant flush
hoping to alleviate the problem but did not work. What is
the most likely cause of this issue

1 Answer

It sounds like your thermostat is stuck open or missing. It happens as the thermostat gets older or is not put back in from a service. Hope this helps. Mike
