92 Mustang won't heat up.

My 92 Mustang takes forever to reach normal operating temp...... 30-40 minutes. I've replaced the t-stat and the coolant temp sensor in the heater hose.

Everybody I've taken it to just scratches their head and says: "Damn, I've never seen one that wouldn't get hot!!"

This can't be the only car that does this. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks, Danno

Re: 92 Mustang won't heat up.

Engine block might have a crack in it. But that's just a guess.

Re: 92 Mustang won't heat up.

Done It Run Crappy Cold,are You Going Off The Temperature Guage.
While Its Running Is The Engine Getting Warm, Ie. Can You Feel The Block And Does It Feel Warm.
A Weird Problem But Hey The Cooler Your Car Can Run When Its A Hot Day The Better, Least It Not Doing To Much Damage From Over Heating.

Hey Danno, I owned an 89' nissan sentra for 8 yrs. before I got my beloved 06' stang, and the temp needle on that car would never move past the first line if I was rollin, and only a third if I was stuck in bumper to bumper trafffic. I never replaced the t-stat. Maybe it was stuck in the open position. I also kept the antifreeze fresh. I live in Miami, Fla., and it gets hellish hot, so, I guess that was a good thing for me. The car never gave me a problem.

Re: 92 Mustang won't heat up.

Hey Danno, you say that the t-stat was replaced, but was it a replacement one for your car or did you get a lower openning temp t-stat. If not, I recommend you get one that opens at a lower temp. This should allow the coolent to circulate in a more desired time frame.
