Engine Cooling problem
1987 Dodge Ram 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 211000 miles
I have a 87 dodge ram 50 2.6L that is running hot. I have replaced the thermostat twice, radiator, fan clutch, sending unit, temp switch, backflushed the whole system. I used a thermal gun to take the temp off the thermostat housing and all around the intake area. The housing reads 208F with the guage 3/4 of the way up getting close to the red. This was just at idle. It doesnt seem to matter much driving or idling. What is the normal temp supposed to be. Im looking at a bad gauge or water pump. Water pump looks fine unless there is an internal problem. What should I do next?
have the same problem?
