    This is a known issue with these vehicles. You will want to take this to a shop that has the ability to update the software in the engine computer. They will need to check the operation of the thermostat first, and then update the software if it is OK.
    Have them refer to the technical service bulletin from Ford: 07-06-02-003
    Has your check engine light come on? If so, this may be related to this problem as well.
    Good Luck!
