Exclamation Oil Temp Too High??

hey guys. its been getting pretty warm here in southern california lately and ive been noticing my engine oil temp seems kinda high. driving highway or city streets being pretty easy on the throttle while running the spartan 210 tune i have been seeing my oil temps get anywhere from 204 to 212 degrees on my dashdaq. does that seem high to you guys? i havnt seen it go above 212 mainly because once its hitting 210 i tend to get off the throttle as much as possible. other than that the truck seems to be running just fine.

so, i guess my question is, are these temps something to actually worry about or am i just trippin?? and if it is something to worry about what could be causing it??

thanks
mike

interesting...I am running and pretty much have always ran the 210 tune...I have somewhat noticed the same thing with mine you are experiencing.

Running down the interestate it will hit 201/204 unloaded, but usually steadies out at 201.2... pulling my 6x12 enclosed I have seen as high as 210 pulling some decent long grades put leves out at around 204.

Running around town it stays where is used to at 199... the stock gauge doesn't move at the higher temps so haven't been overally concerned, but I would like to keep the heat out. Would like to know too if there is something to look for? Coolant is right on the money, EGT's seem normal to me too...

ya today i hit 212 just driving city streets for about 15 minutes. as you stated my factory gauge doesnt seem to move at all either. in the colder months it would always no matter what sit between 194-197 and when pulling it might creep up to 201-202. my egts seem normal while driving but when i stop and let it cool down for a little before turning it off they are staying right at 400 where they used to be around 350. havnt noticed any coolant leaking or anything like that.

i will be pulling a 22' flatbed weighed down to about 7k in 2 weeks and want to make sure im not going to damage anything.

mine is running 230 just driving normal on the 210 tune... so you think you have problems! best i can figure is its the engine oil cooler going bad. i am calling the dealer tomorrow to see how much it would cost to replace. it doesnt look like fun to do at home.

What is the ECT/EOT spread?

Does it run cooler on a lower HP tune?
