coolant temps?

Got my insight hooked up checking my deltas....86 outside and cruising on the highway for around 30min at 60-70mph,no load and my coolant stood around 210-216 and oil was 210-218.The oil and coolant stood pretty close to eachother with oil being around 1-4 degrees higher..But than sometimes the coolant would rise 1-4 degrees higher than the oil...Is that normal?...At one point doing around 65-70 the coolant temp shot up to 223 with the oil around 221-224 but than the fan kicks on and brings the temps down to around 212-216..Honestly I had my truck for 5yrs now and to me it always ran hot because I would always hear the fan kick on......But now that I can check the temps I wonder what my temps will be on like a 95-100 degree day..And i'm not even pulling a trailer..........

That seems a little hot to me for a stock truck without towing.

I don't think it is hurting anything though since the fan brings it down.

Things you might check:
loose belt
plugged radiator fins (or something reducing the normal air flow)
extra heat from sticking turbo
sticking thermostat

I agree that does seem high on the coolant temp. How does the insite take readings? Does it use factory sensors or are they installed. If installed , where are they installed? If factory is used I would verify that the reading is correct. Easiest way to verify is look at all temp sensors after a cold soak and the readings should all be close to the same(within a couple degrees).

Thats hot. when its 100+ degrees outside my truck runs ECT-190-192 EOT-195-200 at 70 mph, cooler at 55.
When its -20 - mid 70's ECT- 188-190 EOT 191-195.

Towing 10k+ my truck runs those temps yours does. id start by replacing the t-stat. im not sure on the condition of your cooling system but your rad could be getting plugged up. externally your rad might be full of stuff. washing it out couldn't hurt
