Reasonably cool air today (high in the 30's and low in the 30's)....drove the little turd to work & back and also to lunch, new thermostat in, absolutely perfect. Gets up to about 190, cycles a time or two, and then holds 190-ish. Problem solved. Still odd to have multiple "bad" motorcraft thermostats but it goes right along with my "luck" (or lack thereof).

Congrats on solving the prob, Todd!  [Image: happy0034.gif]

Perhaps the so-called "Motorcraft" t/stats were junk/counterfeit?  [Image: confused0024.gif]
