ED 94 Falcon Duel Fuel Temprature problem.
Hi guys, I am new up here I have searched for hours for answers but couldn't find them so I hope someone can help me out. Yeap I am a newbie up here too. I am little concerned about the welfare of "Eddie Falcoon" and would appreciate the help of all you good men to set him well again! :)
BACKGROUND: I blew a hose the other day and I have had all the hoses replaced and had new coolant and stop leak put in. (By the way the little plastic circular about third inch in diameter fell into water bottle when pooring it in. I have since flushed radiator and haven't been able to locate it. As I thought this may have been the problem.) Since putting it all back together it is running a lot hotter on the tempreture gauge. If I am in traffic the temp will go up to the middle of the gauge. Prior to the worst I have the temperature guage reach is just entering the normal area. A couple of questions.
1) What thermostat should I be running (I am thinking of replacing it) with a duel fuel system bearing in mind I only run on Unleaded for about 20 klm a week?
2) Would that small plastic/silvery stop leakage seal that sits on top of the bottle that fell into my water system cause me problems how far could it travel as it is relatively flexible and flew straight down into the radiator. Unable to flush it out!
3) Any thoughts on what is good temperature control and what is the usual reading on other guages considering it is going to get a lot hotter in summer... :)
Other than that car runs magnificently no problems. I am concerned of "Eddie" overheating and cracking his head! :) Plus, I know it runs hotter on gas.
All help is appreciated.
