Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Is the vehicle overheating or is the gauge in the instrument cluster just showing it is overheating ? What's the temp. of the engine ? Using a infrared temp gun point at the upper radiator hose at the engine . At 223 degress the computer should turn on the cooling fan's , or another way to tell would be to hook up a professional scan tool a view coolant temp sensor data , what temp is the PCM seeing . Do the cooling fans come on ? Is the check engine light on ? Probably would be if the coolant temp. sensor was bad ! Testing to find the problem is the correct way to a fix , not guessing ! The electronics on your vehicle are very complex , computer controlled . Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop .
