SOURCE: engine not getting hot check engine light is

The two things may be related. You need to have the OBD II code read to determine what the trouble code is. Most auto parts stores read these codes for no charge.

A car in which the coolant does not get hot enough likely has a malfunctioning thermostat. Thermostats are cheap and easy to replace.

2003 mountaineer V8 Temp gauge jumps to hot not over heating. Replaced thermostat, no change

The Engine Temp. sensor is bad. it is under the intake manifold. if there is a miss also check under the coils over the spark plugs. If there is Coolant in the spark plug holes .then the intake gasket is leaking. The intake manifold needs to come off to change the coolant sensor. When off look for corrosion on the cylinder head at the coolant port. If there is corrsion then the cylinder head must be replaced.
