Ranger Operating Temp and Thermostat Question
My truck has had a few problems since i've started driving it again after a long winter! First was the clutch issue, which i just had fixed..and now i've noticed i have no heat!
So heres my questions..can anybody with a scangauge tell me what their normal operating temp is on their ranger..i have an 08 2wd xl...im sure they all run about the same temp anyways. Im running at 81 degrees celsius which is about 177 degrees F
This will help me realize if the truck is not getting hot enough..then i can try swapping out the thermostat. I've also read about the heater blend door being a common problem, but thats more so for the older rangers. I doubt its the heater core..and i havent checked the hoses under the hood to see if they're getting hot. Over the winter i would start the truck up every few days and run it...and just about a week ago i started up the ranger and ran the heat on full blast since we had some frost in the morning. Everything was working then..so i dont know what the issue could be! Any help would be appreciated!
