96 4.0 Operating Temp/temp probs???

Have a 1996 V6 4.0 , what is the operating temp for this motor. Second, coolant temp gauge in the last 2 weeks or so, has started reading 1/2 to 3/4 in the band. Moving higher when going faster. But not reaching overheating level. Want to know what might be causing this, always used to run just under 1/4 in the band except during the summer and city oper.

Thermostat??
Coolant levels are fine in radiator and reservoir. Tested temp around 160 deg.

thanks.

I'd say you've got it. Change your thermostat and let us know how it goes.
