Focus MK2 petrol - problem with temperature gauge

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I think I have a problem on my last acquisition, a Ford Focus MK2 (2206) 1.8 petrol Duratec HE 125hp.

The temperature gauge rarely get off of 60 "degrees C". I check that sometimes it increases a little but never reaches the first step and it comes again to 60 degrees.

I found on the web a similar speedometer that explains the behaviour of my car (note: is not from my car):

Based on my other cars, usually the temperature gauge goes to the middle. So I think that should not be the default behaviour of the Focus.

The coolant is ok, the engine also seems to work weel.

What do you think that the problem is?

Thanks for your help.

Cheers.

Hi Iantt,

Make sense. I was thinking that could be a problem on temperature sensor but after reading more about thermostat stuck open I check that a symptom was the ventilation hot temperature is not so hot as suppose to be. I realised last weekend when turned on the ventilation.

Thanks for your help! :)

Hi,

Mine is a 1.8 and it sits just below the middle.  I think your thermostat is stuck open.

Thanks Jonathan for your feedback.

I will change thermostat and then give feedback here. ;)
