I've seen cases where the alternator was shot but the light was not on. But yes, it should be on when the key is on before the engine is started.

The stock thermostat isn't fully open until 219 IIRC. I've gone as high as 225 without worrying. I don't know if it means anything, but the default "alert" setting on my Edge is 230.

History... I bought the truck with ~27,000 miles on it. In 2006, so that was some time ago. Memory isn't...
