Engine Oil Temp too low? p1184

Got an 08 F550 6.4 Keep getting code p1184 Engine oil temperature sensor out of range.

Hooked up the scan tool and watched the EOT and ECT and the oil temperature seemed alittle low to me, At idle engine warm EOT would drop to 109* and after cruising around getting on it pretty hard the max temp I saw was 125* while the ECT was consistantly 160-170* at idle or driving..

btw its about 40* out right now.. been getting the code for a few weeks though, if cleared it comes back every couple of day or so.

any ideas? Thanks!

Sounds like the oil temperature sensor is bad.

I think it's your thermostats. If you should hit 185 even on colder days than that. How is your heat in the truck?
These are known for thermostat issues

Funny you mention that, I replaced EOT. Sensor and I drove around and ECT n EOT temps were within 1-2* and code was cleared .. But max temp I saw was 160*ish.. Didn't think much of it untill today light came back on... Forget code but it said engine coolant circulation/performance. Thanks!

How hard was it to replace the EOT sensor?

Pull the intake boot off from the airbox to the turbo, (two hose clamps) sensor is right there, unplug it, replace, done! I've never done one before and it was a 10min fix. Sensor is on the passenger side of the oil filter housing at the base.
