What temp does your truck run?

I was wondering what ETC everyone is running at 75 MPH and 95+ ambient temp. I am running about 214 ETC and 212 EOT. Just wondering if that is normal or if something is wrong. Just put a new fan clutch on b/c I was getting the fan speed no signal code. I can't remember what it ran last summer. Thanks in advance.

Both seem very high for running empty even at those air temps. Is this the average, or what you saw as peaks?

Even in the summer I don't see EOT over 200* running empty, even at 75mph, unless I'm on the grades. I normally cruise around 65-68 mph, and see 184 ECT and 196 EOT on average, and know my oil cooler's coming due for a rebuild.

...Those numbers don't seem correct...

Oil temperature will exceed coolant temperature after the engine is operating for a few minutes.

I see 206-210F for ECT and 214-218F EOT at 90F ambient air temperatures when driving 65mph (a range of 6 to 9 degree difference typically) - these are recent readings with this weather and my regular driving style. My truck weighs 16000lbs and I keep the speed below 70mph ordinarily. I have a 4.88 differential, upgraded intercooler, and I run Rotella Ultra ELC (it is gold colored, EC-1 rated coolant) with a coolant filtration system and an oil bypass system.

...stock headbolts too if it matters but the truck isn't tuned...

While the thermostat isn't fully open until 219F, I have rarely seen my coolant at such a high temperature; only when ascending mountain passes such as in the Rockies or Smokies or Blue Ridge Mountains at highway speed. Depending on your location and driving style, I would be concerned about hitting 214F driving 75mph level and steady.

Thin mountain air and maintaining high boost conditions might generate elevated coolant temperatures as you report. It might be a good idea to check the ECT and EOT at startup to validate they are near ambient temperatures to determine the sending unit calibration.

Running empty at 75mph my truck stays around 194 ECT and within a degree or two EOT.

everybody is going to say that is high.... however i doubt they are running in 95+ temps yet. In vegas that is what i see so i bet it is just fine and that was with a brand new oil cooler. I just installed the BPD ext oil cooler as I was tired of always seeing temps that high in the hot weather. I will let you know if it helps.

Thanks for all the input. I replaced the thermostat about 4 months ago because during the winter I was running about 182 ECT and about 175 EOT. I need to get me a winter cover for my BPD oil cooler. I was just concerned about the water pump may be starting to lay down on me.

Your EOT can run lower than your ECT if you have the BPD oil cooler and I do. You are right if it is stock cooler.

You might want to put a new degass bottle cap on, the Stants are 5 bucks from the auto parts store. By maintaining the right pressure in the cooling system temperatures will stay lower.
