that's all normal. Just wait for your coolant temps to go haywire on the commander. Seems to happen to everyone sooner or later. Mine reads from 190 to 250 and bounces all around like a crackhead.

One of the reasons I dumped my Commander was for that.

In the heat of summer I can easily see upto 168* on my trans if I'm running hard, and averaging 195-203* on the ECT..EOT runs about 5-7 degrees hotter. On a good hard pull I've hit 210* on the ECT.

Now, I do have a busted EGR cooler, so it is probably playing havoc with my ECTs. But, that will be cured soon.

My higher temps I have just seen within the last month, month and a half. We have gone into a heat wave and high humidty over the last couple of weeks.

If you have a busted EGR cooler you will see white smoke and the truck will run like you have a plugged fuel filter. Get that fixed ASAP if it is busted or you will be in to the Ford garage giving them $4000 for a head job and you will not like that.

those temps sound about normal..your temps are hotter now becuase its summer.

under 200* is good for the transmission

under 230* for ECT or EOT
