I just bought a Edge insight cts, its not a programmer, just reads all my temps

i have a 2002 ford f250 7.3 ex cab

Im wondering what ideal temps should be for everything theres so many diffrent guages i can look at

Trans fluid.
coolant temp.
Oil temp.
----those are the 3 main ones

its also has is injector read outs

there was a few more but i can't remember them and the wife has the pickup

Dunno if these are ideal or right or what, but it's what I get on my truck.

Trans temp - 60-80 above ambient temps read at the test port on the transmission (+10 to +15 higher from computer) when unloaded and no trailer. add 10-20 more when loaded or with trailer. Recent reman HD 4R100 transmission, so unless they gave me a bad transmission, that should be about right.

Coolant - around 193 plus or minus 10 when warmed up. slightly higher when loaded or towing. I have a 193 temp thermostat, so this seems reasonable to me.

Oil - +0 to +10 over coolant. Also seems reasonable. The oil is cooled by the coolant, if the oil temps should be lower than coolant, I'd assume they would cool it some other way.

its an edge insight cts

I looked at all my pids i cannot find the coolant temp pid, i know its there somewhere cuz the previous owner who i bought it from on here had it when it was hooked up to his pickup

My readings what i have are these, i believe these would be the main ones to follow if i could just find that damn Coolant temp!

EOT- highway 192-202
TFT- i think the highest its read is 82 unloaded
IAT- Reads about 78-82

I was wondering the same thing. I just bought the Insight CTS as well and I don't know what "normal" temps are for all of these readings.

The EGT probe is an add on part to the Insight. You'd know if you had it because you would have to drill and tap the intake manifold to place the probe in the right spot to get the reading. It also uses a separate plug on the back of the CTS unit that is separate from the OBDII plug.

Unless you are doing very short drives (only a few blocks) or it's still snowing where your at, that TFT seems really low. I'd be suspect of that reading.
