My 1.9L escort will barely get into lowest end of "normal" on gauge after
30 minutes of driving. I don't think it is a defective gauge...the heater
air is barely warm. I have:
1. Flushed coolant repeatedly and replaced w/ 50/50 mix.
2. Replaced thermostat with new one.
What to try next? Another t-stat?
Your first try should've been in the Introduce Yourself thread...all answers and help comes after the introduction.
Bav, you beat me to it. Dougand3, please take note.
My name is Bill...helllo. Nice to meet you all....
I am about to tackle a similar problem with my 95 Escort wagon. It appears that there is a bypass in the thermostat housing that could potentially be the problem. Other research I have found states that replacing the housing with a 91 escort housing will do the trick? Anyone know about this?
The best info we can give you at this time is that intros are done in the "Introduce Yourself" section.
You'd best head off to the introduce yourself section post haste. There
seems to be a bit of reluctance in assistance if you don't follow the
Live and learn :D
