EGT's wont drop below 500 deg.

As the title says, my truck has been idling for 30 min.s or so. I've been having injector issues could that cause temp to not drop? I don't w4ant to shut it off. Oil temp is 179 coolant temp is 174. First time this has happened. I always wait for egt's to hit 350 before I turn if off. Any help would be great, thanks

I think me and 41 other people dont see a real problem.........
With the exception that your coolant temps are very low.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Sticky autometer gauge, no real issue. coolant is always with in 12 deg. of oil so I'm not worried about that. when driving coolant is between 180-190.
