EOT/ECT

I just got my scangauge today so i wanted to see what all of my readings were. My EOT was 206 and my ECT was 186, ficm voltage stayed at 48.0 and my battery volts were 14.0 and my trans temp was at 148. Does anyone know why my ECT would stay so low?

I don't want to be the one to say it... and somebody correct me if i'm wrong but:

you ect is within its normal, correctly operating range. the oil cooler's job is to, obviously cool the oil. It does this by matching the oil temp to the coolant temp. if your oil cooler is junk, the difference between the 2 will be 15 degrees or greater, and your right at 20.

If it is the oil cooler, i would suggest fixing asap. if your getting coolant into your oil, you could risk ruining your bearings in the lower end...

other signs that it failed would be oil in your coolant or coolant in your oil, but this has never happened to me so im not sure how obvious it would be.

its not a very difficult job, if you did your egr delete, you can do this, its directly below it

t-stat looks like its going down hill along with your oil cooler. Did you take these reading going down the highway after the truck was fully warmed up?

So what would be your guys' guess if both ECT and EOT are running high at about 200-210? Going to get a coolant flush tomorrow...
