I have 2 Ranger utes 2013 and 2017 prior to installing the engine guards I blew a coolant hose on the 2013 (recall hose) gauge doesn’t work when you lose coolant and seized the engine due to no tell tail signs (coolant was blown down low) $17,000 engine cost $3000 rental ute cost paid by ford. After this incident I fitted a unit to each ute. I work away and in November 2020 my wife rang and said the temp alarm was going off in her ute 2013, no coolant loss but was the viscous fan fault so I fitted a new fan assembly when I got home. 2 weeks ago I drove her ute and the alarm went off again set at 95 and then I saw the gauge hit hot 1 minute later. The new genuine ford viscous fan hub failed and could of cost us big time if I didn’t hear that alarm. I also caravan and tow big trailers so I use the unit display as my real temp but set your alarm low 95 – 100 it’s better to know early when it’s getting hot.
I am a mechanic by trade and I 100% believe these are worth every cent.
