1992 XLT, 351w, 30 All Terrain tires, not a lot of goodies just yet
So I’ve bought a 92’ XLT bronco 351w at about 191xxx miles a few months ago. I’ve done all regular maintenances aswell as entire new distributor, driveshafts, U joints, TPS, IAC valve, tranny filter and new fluid,B&M tranny pan. Had the transmission worked on as far as transfer case housing was cracked and truck didn’t like to switch gears when shifted, A/T (E4OD). Not all of this pertains to the question but figured more information helps. So my temp gauge will barely leave the Cold and almost hit the Norma reading then back to Cold and bounces back and forth yet the engine seems to warm up and heater blows decent heat. I had a thermostat at 160 degrees so just swapped it with a 180 tstat but then she started leaking.. came from a few spots so tightened all my radiator tubes and water pump housing but still won’t show it’s heated on the gauge, I think it’s leaking from the water pump pulley. Gauge stays the same and lately the upper radiator hose is collapsing after trying to warm it up and horses don’t seem to get hot like they should so idk what to do looking for any suggestions, can answer any questions thanks!
