EOT and ECT question

I just received my PHP FICM programmer in the mail and its awesome. The Programmer, which is also a Edge Evolution, will be my gauges that I have desperately needed(EGT Probe is on the way). I hooked everything up and FICM voltage and Trans temps look great but my eot and ect temps are that of concern. I am new to diesels and have spent the last year roaming around this site soaking up as much knowledge as possible. The eot and ect temps always stayed within 5-8 degrees so that's good and when I started driving the temps looked great in the high 180's but after driving it a bit they made it all the way up to 210. According to the monitoring sticky anything 200-215 should be "Heavy Service". Should I be concerned or is this common. I did romp on the engine a couple times but definitely not anything excessive.

What were your temps, both oil and coolant. Which one did you post? I'm assuming you posted coolant temp?

If you were running it hard in 100 deg heat you could see temps like that, but like Mitch said, what was each temp? and did the temps come back down when you were not on it hard?

The 210 was oil temp and coolant was 204. When I would let up to normal driving the temps would drop maybe 3-4 degrees but once above 200 it never dropped back below. I will pay close attention to it today and see what it does.

You're fine. Temps are typical for 100* plus weather. your delta is fine. No worries.


Yeah Anthony. Things to do, people to see. Actually woke up at 4 to pee and couldn't get back to sleep.
