6.4 oil temp problems

I have an 08 6.4 with 105,000 miles and the other day after 45 min of combined city and highway driving my EOT hit 230 while the ECT still 190. I had no load the outside temp was mid 80s and i had the ac going. I took the truck to ford thinking the oil cooler had gone bad. They called me a couple days later saying 230 is ok for EOT and hot is considered 260. From what I have found the EOT and ECT should be within 4 degrees of each other. Obviously there is a problem but I am at a loss what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

How are you monitoring your temps? what mods do you have on the truck? Def. sounds like a plugged oil cooler with those kind of deltas. I had a plugged up oil cooler and pulling my fifth wheel (10k pounds) I was seeing those kind of deltas.

Sounds like the diesel guy at that dealer is dumber than a box of ****.

Took them two days to diag it?

15-25 degrees MAX delta. And 25 is the high end, with high ambient temperatures, and load.

The truck has a 5 inch straight pipe with cat and Dpf delete. An s and b intake and a spartan 250 tune. I was using the dash daq to monitor EOT and ECT.

It sounds like the oil cooler. I had the same thing happen to my rig. I ended up installing the bulletproof diesel 6.4l half kit on and it works great. I heard to many horror stories of people replacing their oil coolers more than one time with their trucks.

So I picked up the truck from ford after they charged me $150 to do nothing and they gave me a copy of an e mail they received from ford hotline assistance about oil temps.

"If there was a concern with high EOT the PCM should set a P012F DTC. The difference between the EOT and the ECT will vary depending on the ECT, air temp and engine load. The difference of 15 degrees is not valid for the 6.4, the 15 degree difference between the EOT and ECT was used on the 6.0 engine. Since there is no P012F DTC present it is not supected that there is a concern present. Once the EOT reached 259*F the PCM will derate engine power without setting a DTC, and it is normal for the EOT to be higher than the ECT because the coolant cools the oil."

Any thought on this...?

230 okay? Maybe pulling a double wide through CO.

15 degree is valid, and any EOT over 225 is not good.

Have you tried tuning down for awhile (spartan 250 tune)?

Any reason why you need to keep it tuned so high?

I agree the 1/2 kit will solve the heating unless you have a plug.

I hit 221 in 104 degree weather in Texas last week while in reGen mode, but I was going 85 with 1K of weight in the bed. LOL, I was running for the border. (J/k)

Threw the old P2002. I was so happy..
