The thermastat should usualy be on the top of the motor trace your top radiator hose to the top of the motor and thats where it should be. the thermastat cost like under 20 bux took me 15 min to do mine in my 88 bronco 2, don't forget the gaskit

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 5.0 V8 and the temp gauge in dash goes all the way to hot after restarting engine but info panel in console says the engine temp is ok. It seems to run like normal...


Although the Explorer I had didn't have the same size engine, I did have a similar problem. Start with looking up the location of the temperature sensor unit. I little Google search turned up a few youtube videos and some links to new parts ranging from around $20 and up. Of course the price is only dependent upon the application so the lower cost one's could be for the smaller displacement models. Judging by your description and the fact that you drove that distance without the engine seizing, this may be the culprit. Good luck.

Is it normal for the temperature gauge to be at the M in normal on the dash for a 92 ford explorer sport?


Runing at the middle of the temp gauge is normal, If a vehicles temp gauge needle goes into the red zone on the gauge or into the hot zone as far as the needle will go .then you start worrying. Middle position is (NormaL for most (Vehicles) You have nothing to worry about.

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer, the temp gauge goes up just a little bit above normal that is when I smell antifreeze and I get a little bit fogged up and film on window then it goes back down to normal. And...


You should look under the dash on the passenger side to see if there is any evidence of antifreeze on the bottom of the heater plenium. What usually starts as a small leak in the interior of the plenium will eventually lead to the heater core leaking all over the interior. You are getting steam and the smell becasue the is a small leak now inside that enclosure with the subsequent results.

You probably have air in the system. Take off the radiator cap and start the engine. Turn the heater on hot. Let it warm up and fill the radiator as the level drops. Make sure the thermostat opens and coolant is flowing in the radiator. Continue to add coolant until the level stops dropping. Also check for any bleed ports on the hoses or housings where they attach. If you see any bleed ports, crack them open and let any air out. Put the cap back on and see if the heater is working. If this doesn't work, please get back to me.

first determine if the car is actualy getting hot.dont trust the gauge or fan for these are controled by a temp sensor, if the sensor went bad it will tell you its hot. the other thing it might be is a air bubble trapped in the system

That is very possible.Your radiator could also be plugged,You water pump could be could be giving out or the head gaskets are bad..Those are all worse case scenario's But yes the thermostat could be the problem..I'd start with that then make sure your clutch is working properly..Hope this helps you and have a great day
