What is normal water temp range for 92' Ranger ?
I have a 92' Ford Ranger Supercab with 2.9 V6. I was stuck in slow traffic out in the Arizona desert over 4th of July weekend. My water temp gauge went up to 220 degrees while idling. I know for a fact that all cooling system repairs and maintenance are current. It was just so hot outdoors.
What is the normal water temp range for my make/model? I use an AutoMeter gauge that has no color bands or redline. My mechanic says make sure it doesn't go over 230.
I just hope I didn't do any hidden damage. There are no symptoms of any kind, and truck runs well.
Next time, I'll just pull off the road. I want to install an auxiliary electric fan in front of the condenser. But there doesn't appear to be enough room.
I tried the Water Wetter and have seen a 5 degree temp decrease so far.
So what is the normal water temp range for 92' Ranger, and any thoughts on how I can enhance cooling?
