Question on ECT's and EOT's while driving in the hills

So I got a Scangauge II yesterday. Today driving to work I was watching my Ect and Eot. In town my Ect was 190-192. Eot was 201-203. When I leave town I get into the hills. No serious grades but some constant up and downs. While drive the hills my Ect was 190-196. Eot were 208-219. Eot mainly stayed around 214.

Is this normal? Should I replace my oil cooler? Don't know if it matters but I just did an oil change 5 days ago. Rotella synthetic.

I don't have any problems with the truck right now that I know of. When I bought the truck I flushed the old coolant, replaced the oil cooler and the Egr cooler.

I'd appreciate any help or comments.

Thanks guys.

How long ago since the coolant flush and new oil cooler? Did you put in the new cooler before or after the coolant flush? From the looks of your readings, your oil cooler is clogged. Even with some hills your delta should not get that bad at 60-65 mph.

It was done about 2 years ago. I flushed with the old cooler in, then replaced everything.

Side question, I just got my ScanGauge and can't find EOT on it.
How did you do it?

You have to program it into the Xgauge.

So I'm not taking any chances with the oil cooler. I ordered the Bulletproof Diesel oil cooler setup yesterday. It will be here Wed.

to work, but searching found that I can monitor EGR valve as well.
I've been researching monitoring options and ScanGauge comes the most economical. I know the $300-700 computer and Iphone based monitors have more options, but can't beat the $100+ price on SG with latest coupon.
Sorry for sidetracking the thread, but it will take me another 2 weeks before I take my camper for longer trip, so can't wait to see how the gauges will work on the road.

Congrats on the BPD cooler! Has there been a set price yet on the heavy duty kit?
