Question 95 wrangler 4.0L temperature question.

i have a 95 wrangler with the 4 litre, 240,000 miles. for some reason the temp gauge wont go up past like 140, i just bought a new thermostat for 195 degrees, and did a coolant flush. i live in michigan and it is cold here so i also tried a piece of cardboard in front of half of the radiator, and still did not change the temp. any suggestions?

i'd check compression on that motor, but i had 1990 xj that was the same way, it had around 150k, and i did everything you did, and it didn't change. it never got really nice heat in the winter.

engine might be tired, thats the only thing i can think of that you haven't covered, as long as you used a proper antifreeze mix, too strong a mix will give you this result also.

edit: just thought of this, if you're heat is satisfactory i wouldn't worry, i would aslo make sure the temp gauge is accurate if you have good heat. but i'm assuming your heat isn't working so good, and the temp gauge is probably right.

if you're happy with your heat don't even worry about it.
