running hot

Just picked up my first 95 f350 powerstroke with about 300,000 highway miles.On the dash the temp guage says NORMAL, this truck aways runs on the A area.You open the hood and you can tell the rig is hot.But it nevers goes higher and never boils over.Where do I start "electrial or cooling system."

I would suggest replacing the temperture sending unit,it's located on the water pump.It feeds the signal to your gauge and it's less than 20 bucks.You can count on an accurate reading after this and maybe you aren't running hot

Mine barely touches the O. I've noticed that the temp gauges are never consistent. I've been driving daily in over 100 degree weather too and it reads the same as always.

@ the last 2 fellas, sounds like you both need to replace your thermostats. Sounds like they are stuck open. Had same thing with my temp gauge reading until I put a new one in.

Appreciate that, didn't even think of that as a possibility but if it's happened before with these things then it's probably happened to me.
