New ScanguageII

Is there a place I can look up what to expect my
readings to be,or should be,on my new ScangaugeII??
I will be monitoring my 2007 6.0 PSD DRW with 124,000 miles.
I tow a 13,600# fifth wheel RV.

I have found several threads on this subject but
I still don't know exactly what is normal.
I am in Colorado where I will be pilling over a few
mountain passes.

I will watch ECT,EOT for sure.
What others are most important to monitor?

Thanks for your help...charlie

FICM Voltage should be no lower than 47 volts at any given time. And that's "FMP" on your Scangauge. Max would be 48.5 volts...

Oil and coolant temp should be between 190 and 210. There should be no temp difference (delta) between the two greater than 10 degrees.

Tranny Temp= 140-180*
Battery Voltage= around 13v
FICM voltage= ^^^ is correct!

And I will elaborate on the deltas..
When driving 60-65 MPH, unloaded, on a flat highway, with the coolant temp atleast 190* you oil temps is 15* higher (I would start planning around 10*) then your coolant temp that means your oil cooler is clogged. If your oil cooler gets clogged it prevents the coolant from coming into your EGR cooler thus causing it to rupture, sending coolant into your cylinders. When that happens your Head Gaskets will fail.

All of the above issues can be prevented with keeping an eye on your deltas!

Also, If the coolant temp does not reach 190* that means your thermostat is stuck open and I stongly reccomend getting an OEM Motorcraft thermostat if needed
