Asked by Mar 27, 2012 at 12:31 PM about the 2011 Ford Escape Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 ford escape 3.0 V6 auto it has a water temperature gauge that always reads half way for a warm water temperature, there no numbers on the gauge. The other day I hooked up a scangauge to the computer and it read 218 – 220 for a normal warm temperature. Is this to hot?

Nope its good. If the water gets too hot you will get a warning. If the gauge is between the blue and the red, you're good.
