Re: Overheating...what's left?
Chipset...ok, sorry I did misread but I also recalled that the motorcraft thermostat listed on Rockauto (only 1) is rated at 190 and it was stated above that 192 is widely used. Both sensors, the one feeding the gauge and one telling ecm read hot (ecm = 235 deg). Also, this condition was present with the old engine and I am using the sensors that came with the donor motor now, so I am pretty sure the problem is not with the sensors.
In my first post I asked about the possibility of having air in the system as I have not found anything on how to bleed this system. How do you go about bleeding it?
JWKO, yes, I thought the same thing and during the swap I checked and as Chipset stated, it will only fit one way and it is a bear to get to due to the inlet housing sitting right above the subframe.
EDIT...I did just find this:
with a cool engine, pop hood remove radiator or reservoir cap
turn on engine and ensure proper level in radiator or reservoir
turn heat in car to high and full blast
press the top radiator hose in firmly a few times and monitor the rad/reservoir see bubbles come out
refill if needed to proper level
let it run a bit until it starts to get a little warm
replace radiator/reservoir cap
Anyone use this technique to bleed??
