I no longer have a check engine light! I had the low coolant temp code (P0125) for the last month or so. I tried three different thermostats. The last one had the water temp gauge running just below half way and that was not good enough for the computer. As a last resort I bought a Ford thermostat from the dealer and the problem is gone. The aftermarket thermostas were rated at 195 F. They were Stant and Duralast. The Ford unit has 92 C stamped on it, which is just under 198 F. My suggestion to anyone changing a thermostat is to spend the extra money on the Ford one. It was $16 versus $8.
