Post Temperature light yw50F
Hi, I’m a newbie here and just bought a 2013 Zuma 50f. When I drive it about a mile the temperature light comes on. I blew out the dirt from the radiator with the air compressor being careful of the fins. The fan of course works, the coolant looks blue and is oily feeling and only barely off full in the reservoir. I changed the oil then took it for another’s test and it came on again so I took the temperature of the motor and the oil with an infrared gun. 197 F on the motor down by the drain plug and almost that in the oil. I then took the temp of the coolant in the reservoir bottle and it was 93F. Now I’m thinking it is a faulty thermostat or air in the coolant lines or radiator. I’m a recently widowed 52 year old woman that likes to try to figure this stuff out and fix it without bothering my son, plus I’m on a fixed income and can’t afford to take it to a shop unless I have to. I need to know what temperature the motors are suppose to run at. And what else could be causing this light to come on. It has about 6000 Miles on it. And can I just take the thermostat out? Motor still sounds good to me too. Thanks in advance for any help I may get
