DashDaq saved me

DashDaq saved me


DashDaq saved me


I ran thru enough bugs the other nite to block my vision completely.After cleaning the windshield, I resumed travel but noticed that my ECT (engine coolant temp) was running 230#. The factory gauge hadnt budged off of normal. I stopped again to remove bug screen (DUH) that was completely blocked and the ECT returned to normal 210#. (4 Ton load and 80 degrees)

PS, 5500 miles W/Spartan 210-11mpg loaded/16 empty;6 spd

Wow... I don't have a gauge to monitor my Coolant temp, and never thought about needing one. Guess it might be something to consider.
