Angry WTF? Nobody knows anything about EOT's?

I tried searching many different ways to find info on what the EOT should be on a 99-04 7.3.

The ones I did find, nobody said anything about what they should be and if they were high, what would cause it.

I'll ask the question that has been asked many of times and not answered.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE EOT SHOULD BE EMPTY AND TOWING?

WHAT TEMPS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED HIGH?

WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE HIGH EOT?

Thank you if you share the info

That may be. But your reply doesn't answer the questions. I see that this thread says it should be 190-210 and 220 if towing really hard. But it doesn't say what will cause the issue.

I just bought this truck two days ago (2000 F350 7.3 CC Dually 4X4) and I've never seen oil temps go so high. This one will run up to 255 in no time flat. What could be causing that?

My reply answered ever question but one.

170 is low end of normal. 220 being the high end.

As for the reason you haven't given any info about your truck, driving style or condition so any answer is just a guess.

No, your reply doesn't answer the question and I shouldn't have to give a driving style. This should be pretty standard for all 7.3.

Thanks for your help anyway. Maybe someone with more knowledge can help.

Is there a thermostat that controls the temp for the oil?

Your being kind of a douche bag, these guys are all really knowledgeable. If you spoke a little nicer your questions might get answered. I see your from California so you're really living up to the stereo type of the people that live there.

No it's not standard for every engine, in the 7.3 there is a ton of factor's that affect EOT, my truck was seeing 260's not towing and it took a while to find the answer.

Yes driving style, condition, mileage,mods, and location all matter.

For example the PCM advances the timing to help raise temps when you fall below a certain value, 180 if I remember correctly, and will advance it even more at 160.

I went through this same dance with my truck and I assure you I have a reasonable amount of knowledge, but suit yourself.

OMG, am I talking to a bunch of old ladies? NO! So STFU. If you don't like the way I speak, then don't reply.
