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?
