Scan Gauge II - Readings ok?
Ok, got my new toy...hooked up and went on first camping trip for 2011.
Camper weight about 11k lbs
Configured XGauges to read;
Dependent on grade...ambient temp 72
TFT (Trans Fluid Temp) 155 - 178
ECT (Eng Coolant Temp) 192 - 220
EOT (Eng Oil Temp) 198 - 239
BST (Boost psi) 0 - 22...then tilts with bogus -values
These seem normal?...
Side story, on way home pulling really steep grade, on throttle heavy...there was a loud "bang" followed by no power and no boost, yet no turbo whine like before when CAC boot at turbo blew off. Struggled up grade at 15mph into rest stop. Popped hood latch, got out, search reveled final hose connection to intake pipe off. Turn to wife with comment "need socket wrench" walk to curb side door to open door and turn off truck... Uh, Oh...its locked and gazing to other three they are too. No problem ask wife standing next to me, do you have extra key? Resp. yes, ahhh, good and where are they? Resp. is in truck right there...oh, crap! So...anyone have a used rear center slider window I can purchase cheap? Yup, I'll be cleaning up those glass chard's for a long time. Moral of story, roll down window before exiting truck with it idling to cool down.
