1. Make sure your coolant is at the proper level in the overflow tanks as well as in the radiator.
2. Make sure the cooling fan is working properly (note as a quick check, turn on the A/C. It should come on with the A/C on regardless of engine temp). When the car is stationary your radiator relies on the electric fan to move air through it. When you are moving air passes through without the need of a fan.

Temperature gauge cold then back to normal


You have to make sure the thermostat is working properly and is the correct one. Idle the vehicle for about 20 minutes and then feel the upper radiator hose. It should be hot to the touch. Drive the vehicle and when the temp gauge falls to 'cold' stop and feel it again. If it is much cooler to the touch than before the thermostat is defective or wrong.

This sounds more like the thermostat is not opening as it should, instead of an ECM problem.

With the indications you state - goes down when heater activated - goes down when moving, that is what I would have checked first, not the cooling fan!

Sounds like you may have a head gasket that has gone bad. with the engine cold remove the radiator cap and start the engine. If there is a constant peculation of small bubble coming out of the radiator and the smell like gas or exhaust you have a bad head gasket.

1987 ford ranger 2.3fi - My heater doesn't blow hot air.


Your thermostat may be stuck in a partially opened position. This would account for the low temp while driving.You can check it by removing it (it should be closed when at room temp, if it's not, it's defective) and dropping it into a pot of boiling water, it should open completely within a few seconds. Also make sure your coolant level is correct, and when idling, check to make sure the engine cooling fan is kicking on when the engine temp rises.

Temp gauge goes to full hot while at Idle


Check the auxiliary cooling fan for operation. As the engine temp rises, it should kick on to bring the temp down. U may have a bad motor on the fan, or more likely a bad fan switch.
