08 f350

Hi guys. just looking for advice. my truck lately has been getting a wrench light after driving about 40 miles in very hot weather. I have a livewire 9625 xtreme. I haven't tuned truck yet but thought id scan gauges while I went to work in morning and after work. in the morning it was only 10 degrees Celsius and temp deltas were around 8 degrees and no light. two mornings in a row. today with the tuner watching on the way home, I got a wrench light. I was really watching the temps. it was around 27 degrees Celsius, 40 mile drive home. deltas were sitting right around 15 degrees and suddenly out of the blue 90% of the way home, the coolant temp dropped 2 degrees f. and right then the wrench light came on. It was a 17 degree difference. should I be alarmed????

are you running Canned tunes that came with it? or are you running custom tunes from a tuning company?

when you're loading the tunes onto your truck, when the option comes up if you have "disabled the EGR" you should be selecting yes, even if its still on your truck. I ran into this issue when i first installed my livewire. also, oil temp read out is in Celcius if you didn't know that. hope this helps.

Are you talking about the spread between your ECT and EOT? If so that means your oil cooler is getting plugged.
