Temp On The 6.0?

What Is The Normal Operating Ect On A 6.0 I Have Been Monitoring My Eot And My Ect And On A 100+ Day In Traffic @ Red Lights Idleing Frequently My Ect Has Been As High As 211 Eot Is Allways Cooler Than Ect So I Dont Think I Have A Oil Cooler Problem And On The Open Road My Ect Drops Back To 193 Or So Has Anyone Added A Electric Pusher Fan In Front Of The Ac Condensor And If So Did It Help In Idleing Trafic Thinking About Adding The Fan And Dont See Where It Would Hurt But Will It Help

I have a similar problem on my 06 F250. I recently reached 241 deg oil temps. My engine ran cooler at 215 during 110 temps outside. The problems began while on the highway up hill not pulling anything. What was your outcome?

If Your Oil Temp Is More Than 25 Degrees More Than Your Coolant Temp Your Oil Cooler Is Probubly Plugged You Need To Have That Checked Or You Will Blow A Head Gasket And A Egr Cooler This Is Pretty Serious I Would Not Drive Far Like That 241 Is Really Hot I HAVE NEVER SEEN MORE THAN 211 WITH MINE

6.0 oil temps.

Thanks for the info. I recently had the Banks 6 gun diesel tunner installed. I hope I dont run into any warranty issues when I go to the dealer.

It does not seem like you have an issue to me. I do not feel that a "pusher fan" would do anything but restrict the OEM fan if it ever had to come on. The diesel engine typically will not heat up at idle. ECT at 211 is not an issue. The thermostat is not fully open until 190. I wonder if you have a placement issue on your thermocouples. The engine coolant cools the oil through a heat exchanger. When everything is at operating conditions, your oil temp will almost always be above your coolant temp (it has to be).

sealsgonz5 - you definitely have an oil cooler or EGR cooler restriction (cooling water side).

I assumed that you had aftermarket gauges - mainly because I am not used to the EOT being below the ECT. I suppose it can happen though. Definitely wouldn't be concerned.

Typical running around town in the 90's here, I average 190-195 ECT, with EOT a couple degrees below or at the same number. Coolant filter installed since 40 miles, so hopefully my oil cooler isn't a filter right now.

During our 2008 Summer Desert Trip, I reached EOT/ECT temps of around 250 degrees pulling my Toy on my car hauler out of the Colorada river valley near Bullhead City, AZ.


EOT is measured by aftermarket gauge with the temp sender on top of the oil filter cap (oil bypass line) and the ECT is measured with the Scangauge II OBD II reader/gauge unit.

Hope this helps.

Tepms.

Thanks for all the info. I recently had the Banks econo mind (not the six gun) installed in my truck along with monster exhaust, ram air and, air filter. I also got the PDA to monitor all of the temps LOVE IT!. I dropped my truck off at the dealer yesterday an discovered that the EGR is on their TBS board as a part to be removed and cleaned causing the problems I am expiriencing. You would think they would have come up with something to resolve this rather than let it run.

just hosed down the rad and all the coolers, there was a surprisingly large amount of dirt and crap on the rad, this has dropped by temps on highway by almost 10*. Still run 205-210 in city traffic. Outside temp is only high 70's low 80's.

Do you have any load on the truck? I'm running with a slide in unit for work, weighs around 3500 lb.

No, I typically pull local miles nothing for long periods around 5k. However, My problems began with high oil temps. I had to have the oil cooler replaced because it was clogged. I discovered that the normal oil temp should be around 209 with a 15 deg diffrence between the engine temp and the oil temp. My truck is at the dealer right now where the egr is being replaced. You could be running into problems in the future causing damage to your egr and head gasket. Your truck sounds like mine did a few months ago when I began having these problems.
