What Temp?

At what temp. do you start having an over heating problem. Traditionally it seems my truck runs (water temp) warmer than others I've seen on here. Today my truck hit 220 (water) degrees coming home from work. I have no codes and I have removed my xcal 2 program and returned to stock. My truck still hit 215 just running around a mile or so. Unfortunately, the wife is out of town and I had to cancel my vacation due to work reasons, so taking her in to ford would present a problem. Any ideas?
Oh my coolant is at the amended ford level and not high or low.
('06, 6.0 4x4)
How many times do I need to run my truck so the dealer does not see my xcal?

Thanks in advance...

I am hoping I don't get that hot...
This all started as soon as our weather reached the high 90s for temps. When I go to work in the morning my temps don't go above 205ish and that was a normal thing. As soon as it went to 215 and above the air conditioner starts blowing warm air. If I then turn off the a/c the temps seem to come back down to normal.

I was kinda thinking maybe t-stat but this being my first oil burner I was not sure if they have one. I was kinda thinking maybe it was sticking. I can hear what sounds like a fan but when that engine is running temp. it is like sticking your head in an oven on top of the normal muggy 98 degrees. So I can not answer your question about the fan.

OK, got a call from the service guy today. I guess I had a intermittent leak in one of the coolant hoses. Best news yet was it was covered by warranty. I am going to have them do the tranny fluid and filters while they have it and get that out of the way. I should have known they would call me today, I put gas in the Lincoln Town Car that they let me drive while they work on my truck...
