Torque Pro Accuracy

Has anyone experienced any issues with Torque Pro and accuracy? On my 03 X, 6.0L it seems to be a little odd as once warmed up my trans and coolant stay at around same temp, usually 179-181 and literally always between a half of a degree from each other. My oil temp though is 30-50 degrees higher. Oil seems to run in the 220-225 range on the highway. No matter what the outside temp is, the oil is 210-225 and coolant/trans temp always seem to be in the range above.

FIMC is 48 and voltage system usually in the higher 13's. Cant remember any of the other numbers.

Do these numbers strike anyone as odd? I ordered an oil cooler and EGR delete and they will be installed soon, but I'm just mystified as to why the trans/coolant seem to always be at the same temp.

I have had good success with my Torque app. I have the BDP oil cooler and see a difference between all the temps. You may be seeing the temps close due to the coolant cooling the oil as well, keeping temps within a certain range.

I do have different temps between trans and coolant. If not, I would be looking for a trans by now! I see between 160 to 180 degrees on a 25 mile highway commute.

Oil temp gets to about 180 right now (50's in the morning) and coolant is around 200 degrees.

You may want to see if there is a different PID for trans temp, that could be an issue.

I feel the torque app is accurate on my 05 X. For the trans temp, like seanol said, it's probably a different PID you have to select. For mine, there were two I could select from. One matched the ect exactly, the other was accurate to the trans temp. Try looking through them all with the truck running, you'll see what's available.

I don't have all that much experience in a 6.0 or diesels yet, but your oil temp seems way to high with way to much of a spread imo. Either way, looks like you got it covered with the coolers tho. G'luck.

There is a PID that gets coolant temperature from the TCM. There are several PIDS in the app so you might have to bring up a blank dashboard and put all of them on there to see which one is correct.
