2011 4.0 litre thermostat question.
I monitor coolant temperature from the computer with a ScanGauge.
Warm up takes a long time, at least 15 minutes, and it struggles to hold 82°C (180°F), with ambient just above freezing.
In my 2007 4.0 litre Ranger I'm sure it warmed up quicker and easily held 88°C (190°F).
If anybody else is monitoring coolant temperature in a late model Ranger please tell me what you are seeing.
Does anybody have the specs of the OE thermostat, or temperature information from the shop manual?
