Temp gauge Irratic
I went on a 100 mi round trip today to get some parts and on my way back I glanced down at my temp gauge and saw that it was irratically moving from the cold line to about the "o" in normal.
I pulled off and checked the coolant and it was fine. No bubling or anything.Nothing dripping on the ground. I was getting no white smoke from the exhaust(thinking head gaskets).
I added a little water to bring it to the top of the line "1 qt"
I drove along. The outside temp was only around 75 so it wasn't hot.
As I'm driving I can see the gauge fall and flutter about every minute or two. ( makes sense since it is probably the t-stat opening.
It just seems to me like I am getting air in the system but it has never done this before. I am running Rotella Diesel Coolant which has all the additives in it and is certified for Ford and International.
BTW" my water pump and sensor is only about a year old.
