is it running to hot?

i have 94 f350 4x4 powerstroke. i just changed the thermostat because it wasnt heating up. temp gauge wouldnt go past the C. i ended up putting in a 205 deg t-stat. to me it seems to be running to hot, the gauge needle sits in between the A and L, about 3/4. anyone else have a 205? if so where does your needle sit? should switch to a cooler t-stat?

Get a real gauge so you can see actual temps the stock gauge is a POS your truck year comes stock with a 205 stat later years came with a 195

I completely agree the stock gauge is terribly inaccurate in terms of water temperature.

Really? so what is your temp when say your gauge is on the n in normal LOL

without a real gauge you can only guess, If the original poster is concerned about running too hot than he should get a real gauge A gauge is only 20 bucks or so well worth it .

I kinda thought mine was accurate till the sender or gauge went out. So I bought a ISSPRO water temp gauge and been happy with that.

But iirc, it was between O and R. When I hit M and A, my injector cups went.
