    I wonder where the coolant light would be added. Would hate for an unsightly tacked-on gauge cluster light or worse.

    Ford made a head revision in 2015 meaning they knew the earlier models had the issue. It sucks for 2014-2015 model owners cause I would be constantly worring about my coolant levels which I always try and check when I can. I had a gti before the fist and had to worry about the water pump going out on that car so I know the feeling

    Yes. But why trust a forum when you can go to Ford's website and enter you VIN to confirm. It takes very, very little effort.

    I have not, I think they're sending letters out on the 18th. The recall will happen in 2 stages, a bigger coolant reservoir and rerouting the plumbing in the second quarter of 2017, then installing the sensor and associated software in the 4th quarter of 2017... so we've got some time before anything happens yet

    There are a couple of threads about ForScan. Are there any parameters that can be modified for engine fan on/off temperature or does this require a reflash?

    How difficult is it to access and replace the thermostat with a colder temperature? For example if the default is 193F, would a modded 180F with a lower engine fan on/off be a good work-around?

    Cooler engines aren't good for emissions testing however. So some unusual fast-idle may be needed before submitting to one.

    My prior car has spent most of it's life 23 years being grossly over-cooled due to a bad thermostat bypass valve. Winter heat output, ash in the catalytic converter (media illegally removed) were the only issues of consequence. (no emissions testing here) One would think or assume water in the exhaust would be an issue but it is OEM with >330k miles in the rust belt.
    The answer that was given to this question about whether ForScan could be used to modify fan on/off temperatures is: NO.

    Core engine control parameters require an access port and re-flash.

    Now that the question has actually been answered, if someone wants to debate the logic of lowering coolant temps, you may proceed.
