2.5L lower hose lukewarm
I have a 1999 5-speed XLT ext cab ranger, recently I have noticed that the temp guage is hanging rather low, around the lower part of the normal range. Today I drove around 280 miles with a short stop about 15 minutes and when I got home the lower radiator hose was only lukewarm and the temp guage was still reading low. I replaced the t-stat when the problems started and obviously it didn't fix the problem. Please someone help me before I shoot this truck.
