Scangauge II Installed...

... and Oil Temp and Coolant temp are within 4 degrees, with Coolant at around 188-190 and Oil at 190-193. Time to flush the system quick before it screws up. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle!

And knowing brings peace of mind. So much information, so little time!

You need to go to the Scangauge website, and go to Xgauges and scroll down to the Ford 6.0 section and enter the codes. Simple process, just be accurate in your entries.

Oh, I understood that, I was just commenting on that I can flush the silicants out of the system and not have to worry about following that up with an oil cooler rebuild.

I just used the velcro supplies, and stuck it under the little cubby on my 04 dash. Some have placed then on the steering column.

Since you have this gauge.... What all does it show for gauges? How is fuel econo against hand calculated? Would you buy it again?
