Oil temp

During my trip pulling our 5er I saw oil temp of 240 pulling the hills on I26 near Johnson City Tenn. Is this normal temps ?
I never saw over 225 on my 6.0

Yep...that's a number that has been reported by plenty. No issues as long as the temps dropped on the other side of the hill.

Heavy, any idea what the max engine oil temp is? Or the max engine coolant temp?

Not specifically sure but Ford tends to creep towards the 250*+ limit before the PCM takes action. Remember these trucks have been getting more sensors over the years. Each has a purpose and value to report. When those numbers are not where they should be as determined by Ford the PCM algorithm takes hold and sends alerts as needed.

Heavy, thanks. Since my post, I found the following numbers in a Ford publication:

a) Maximum Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT): 220 F (Gasoline), 234 F (Diesel)
b) Maximum Engine Oil Sump Temperature: 284 F
c) Maximum Transmission Oil Temperature (TOT): 250 F
d) Maximum Catalyst Temperature: varies (not intended for aftermarket monitoring).

My aim is to catch climbing temps before they hit max. That might give me time to find a place to pull over.

As Heavy stated, 240 is not a problem as long as the temp goes back down when the climb eases. I drive a 2017 F-350 6.7 L Powerstroke, and it has been an adjustment getting used to higher temps in the engine and transmission. I have owned a 2008 F-350 6.0 L and a 2012 F-350 6.7L and my 2017 operating temps during steep/long pulls are noticeably higher than both.
