Question about temps.

So now that I have my Edge insight CTS coming I need to know where all the temps should be. I know I need to keep an eye on ECT & EOT. I didn't get the EGT probe yet. What else should I watch and what is the range where all should be so I'll know if I have any problems.

If you search ECT or EOT you'll find a lot of posts. Here's some reading I've seen with my 03.
ECT--180 driving with no load. 195 towing the boat at 70 mph.
EOT--185 to 190 no load. 205 towing the boat at 70.
If you have a 15 degree difference in ECT and EOT, you might want to look into it.

Trans temp--Mine never goes above 165.
EGT--nothing over 1200 for an extended period of time.

I'm no expert, this is just what I'm seeing with my Edge.

It does not matter whether you are studded or not when it comes to EGT's....

I am pretty sure that EGT has nothing to do if your studded or not.. Hot EGT means upset turbo..

Typical for my truck is 190 to 198 degF for ECT and EOT with normal driving. Have not towed with it yet. My truck is completely stock. While warming up to temp, sometimes the delta gets up to 11 or 12 degF, but once it reaches steady state temps my ECT and EOT track within 1 to 3 degrees difference at about 193 degrees average. Likewise, I don't have an EGT at this time. I have the DashDAQ XL with Ford Enhanced License for my monitoring.

If the OP doesn't mind, I'd like to piggyback a question into this thread which is along the same theme. For those of you who have EGT, how long are you typically waiting/idling for EGT's to come down before shutting down the engine. And to what temp are you shooting for when shutting down?

Yeah, studs mean nothing when it comes to EGT's, IIRC, aluminum melts at approx 1320 degrees, guess what's in our turbos and engines

Unfortunately, everyone is gonna post a different reply, and they are all gonna be the right answer because it really depends on what kind of mods you do or do not have, also what the ambient air temp is, and how hard were you driving it before stopping. I would say as long as it starts to cool as soon as you stop, your in good shape. As for what temp to shut off at, I've been advised always below 350* F. That has come from many trained/experienced diesel techs and owners.
