EOT sensor bad?

Truck in sig, about 65 degrees out today:

since i bought the truck, the EOT gauge was not hooked up, yesterday i hooked it up, simple broken wire to the sensor...

The oil heats up somewhat with the coolant, but than keeps going, crusing at 70 its at 240 degrees while the coolant is around 195ish. if i just let the truck idle for awhile it stays pretty much right at 240.

Ive never had any problems or over heating or anything like, just simply finally fixed the wire to sensor. Is the sensor probably bad? I really cant see an unloaded truck crusing or idling and the oil being 240 degress...

is there another way i can test the oil temp?

thanks
Vance

Try hooking up someones edge or AE and see what the ecm is reading for EOT.
Its probably just a bad sending unit though

reviving this thread of mine because i have no one i know of that has a scan gauge or similar i can plug in to..

Can i use a thermometer to check this somewhere? also, if my temps were in fact that high, wouldnt my oil be burnt all to hell? I mean i pull my 5'er regularly and the thing says my temps hit 320 but the oil is still clean as can be

Also if the cooler itself was plugged, wouldnt that cause some other problems? I just resealed it recently and it didnt seem out of the ordinary, oil ran out of both sides of the thing

Surely a member of the Cascade Coal Rollers could hook up a torque app or insight or AE for you.

Yeah the torque app. If you have an android phone you can buy it and a 25$ adapter and check eot among many other things yourself.

Or Buy a cheap android tablet and mount it as an extra on your dash and have a semi permanent on the road monitor for a number of key measurements.
