    Fords tend to clog rads. blow fan fuses, bad computers that show bogus gauge readings.

    Flush out rad, make sure fan coming on, clear any leaves from front grille. Squeeze upper rad hose, make sure thermo not sticking. Refill overflow. .

    If it still gets hot or dips to dead cold, it might be sender or ECM.

    The problem COULD be that you're spending too much time looking at your gauges instead of watching the road in front of you. This is especially true when "hard accelerating"

    Is the radiator full of coolant? Run the motor for 15 minutes with the radiator cap removed and watch for air bubbles.

    Plugged radiator. When's the last time you flushed your cooling system?

    Bad thermostat that isn't opening all the way.

    If it only rises slightly you have no problem. If it rises allot then change the coolant and replace the thermostat. Make sure the radiator fins are clean of all debris.
