Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question,Start first with placing your hands on the heater hoses at the firewall with the engine running at normal temp and see if both hose are getting nice and hot, check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.
Okay if both hose are not nice and hot and you have a properly working thermostat which is likely if the gauge read in the normal range usually means you have either trapped air in the cooling system or a bad water pump. Are you sure you do not have trapped air in the cooling system?
