Temperature help

The past 2 days i've been noticing that my EGTS are running about 150-250* degrees hotter and my EOT has been running 5-6* hotter... Could anyone tell me what could cause this?? since i've had the truck my EOT has usually ran around 190* during normal driving and now it's starting to run 195-196* sometimes even hits 197 or 198*.... And i believe there's a loss in power...here's my couple of questions:

-Is 190 more of a normal temp or 195?
-Could this be caused by injectors not working correctly?> been having injector issues
-Could the 20* warmer weather the past week cause this?
-And i've heard higher EGTS = lower MPGS, is this correct?

i think that's all i have right now, thank you in advance for any advice and if i'm just worrying about something that's nothing please let me know i'm being stupid

An EOT of 190 seems kinda low. I normally run an ECT of 194-196 and EOT of 200 deg. When im towing I will see 203-205 and it quickly goes down when I stop. What have your EGT's been?

for the past couple of months i've been running an EOT of 190-192 (unloaded) and ECT of 188-190 and my egts on the interstate used to be between about 600-750 and for the past 2 days they've been running 900 cruising down the interstate, and when i hit a small grade that it'll hit 1,100.... i wonder why my EOT would have been running under normal temps for so long??

Check your air filter lately? If its clogged that could be why your egts shot

Maybe a plugged oil cooler, that's merely a shot in the dark from me though . Check the diff in temps between your ECT and EOT, if its more than 20*, I think that means you have a plugged oil cooler. The oil cooler is before the EGR cooler, so it makes sense in my feeble mind
