ECT and EOT temps. Caught in time?
Well, I do not need help with this issue as I already know what it is and tomorrow I will be taking it in to the dealership to get it fixed under warranty, however, I thought I would share my ECT/EOT numbers with everybody.
I just bought this truck a couple weeks ago from a reputable dealership around here and the truck only has 78K miles on it. I found a super sweet deal on an older edge platinum juice with attitude, and while I did not do any tunes, I just wanted it to monitor my levels and such.
So I get home and plug it in and drive it to work the next day. I set the cruise to about 65 MPH so I can get a good baseline on my cooling system numbers and what not.
Well here's the fun part, my ECT stayed right around 190 (186-190) but my EOT? My EOT stayed at about 242 after about 15 minutes of driving it!
I think there might be a problem there. haha. No coolant lose, and no coolant spitting out of the degas bottle though so I think I caught it in time before any major damage was done. Needless to say, I parked the truck until I can take it to a reputable ford dealership to get it fixed under warranty.
