Engine Temperature Question.

Hey all. I've got a question about my 2002 F250. It has been about -10 to -15 degrees Celcius here the last few nights. The truck's temperature guage goes up to about half and the heater throws out air hot enough to cook a turkey (a little thanksgiving reference for my American friends). This is absolutely wonderful but I keep wondering if the truck is running a little hot. I've only had the truck a short time and it hasn't seen any warm days since I've owned it. I am scared that it is perhaps going to run too hot when the temps go up in the spring. Is it normal for the truck to run this warm in the cold? The radiator does have a little damage (bent over fins), is this going to cause me grief when winter is over? I've got some friends who drive Chevy diesels and mine warms up way nicer. Thanks guys.

that is about right , it my 02 runs at 195 Fahrenheit normally, if it gets over 230 you need to look deeper. I have a Edge Evolution 2 so one of the setting i have displayed all the time is oil temp..

As long as it is running in the normal range you have nothing at all to worry about, so don't go and create problems that aren't there. lol!! Mine stays slights under the 1/2 way point, if you are really worried there is a plug on the water pump, drivers side, makes it very easy to plumb a quick temp gauge, and it can be removed just as easily. But I really think all is good. These trucks have a very robust cooling system and true overheating problems are rare.
