I keep track of the EOT, ECT, and TFT. The difference between the EOT and ECT should be no more than 15 degrees when warmed up. I run anywhere from 188 to 208 while driving. The oil is always hotter than the coolant. transmission stays at about 150.

Here is a kicker question.... I put ficm on there and my cold start immediately read 34 after 3-4 minutes of driving it stayed steady at 46. Parked it after a 45 minute drive for about 3 hours and same thing, 36v and jumped to 44-46 within a minute. Not to long of a crank, maybe 2 seconds, but acceleration is a little sluggish.

Well looks like you get to buy a new FICM in the near future. You can either send it in to ed at FICMrepair.com and have your current one repaired or you can order a new power supply from Bulletproofdiesel.com

Figured. Would driving it for another week be ok until I can get it here or should I let it lay down. I have another truck and might consider taking it out and sending it in to Ed but at the same time kind of want a new one and then send the bad one into Ed and have a back up.

You really won't need a back up and you could put that money towards a better application. Either egr delete or a bulletproofdiesel egr cooler.

This should answer all your questions. I printed a copy for the glovebox so I don't have to memorize all the normal values.
