Several threads I've read suggest the 2.3 duratec reports head temp on that gauge and not coolant temp, and that UG/SG reported temps of 240-260F are what you see from the "coolant temp" gauge during normal operation. I would be interested from 2.3L UG users and how they have set the temp alarm. I've set mine at 275F for the interim. The UG manual says the Engine Coolant Temperature gauge is "Derived directly from the engine coolant temperature sensor or a cylinder head temperature sensor. Diesels may report engine oil temperature instead"
Looks like everyone that's getting normal coolant temp numbers in the thread has the 4.0
