FORD EXPLORER THERMOSTAT PROBLEM

1999 Ford Explorer • 220,000 miles

Hello, the temperature gauge on my explorer never makes it to the middle. It takes a long time for the vehicle to warm up and eventually the gauge will rise but stop about a 1/3 of the way and lean torwards the cold end. The gauge will fluctuate sometimes when you put down the pedal. I had the thermostat checked and they said it was fine. Any suggestions?

It is not fine. It is opening too early. Have it replaced with a 195 degree.

I'll do that. If the thermostat is bad, would the gauge not even move?

Nope, it would just stay partially open
