Question about Ford Fiesta
I have a 2005 Ford Fiesta that normally runs great but has been cutting out in the cold weather when you take the rev's off. Also temperature guage doesn't seem to work - constantly shows 'normal' not even cold in the frosty mornings. Help please??
You need to replace temp sensor. the computer sends fuel to the engine based on engine temp. when engine is cold it needs extra fuel to stay running.

The gauge can very well be "lying" to you.
As a precaution, I would do a routine cooling system service on it. This includes completely flushing the coolant, replacing the thermostat and radiator cap (believe it or not, a bad cap can cause issues too).
On the few Fords I have owned, mine were always in the middle, or to the left of the middle.
Motor homes should run cooler actually, beings as they tend to have heavy duty large capacity cooling systems.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens. One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side, fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight. Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.

pull the instrument cluster out and check the printed circuit and connector to it from harness, plug it in and out three or four times, this may cure the problem.

I had a similar problem with my 1986 300e , which got progressively worse until the car was no longer driveable, I changed out the fuel pump relay and the problem went away.
