EOT high.. ?

Hi guys, so I was heading hunting on Friday morning and I had a trailer and quad on the back, maybe 1500lbs, not heavy at all, and was on tow tune on scts canned tune, and eot's were hitting 220 easily. And at one point peaked at 225.. The ect's were about 200-215 while eot's were that high.. Also I was going up a long pretty steep grade while this was happening.

Is this normal? I couldn't imagine what temps I would see towing a 10,000 lb trailer..

And advice would help..

Thanks

If the temperature difference exceeded 15 degrees (EOT - ECT), then time for a new oil cooler.

I tow 10k+ in the summer. I have never had my temps that high. And ya, the 15* delta thing doesnt really hold true if you are towing heavy. (though even towing 10K I havent ever had a 15* spread for more than a few seconds) Um 1500lbs, that shouldnt effect any temps and you should have minimal deltas.

If it was my truck I would do a flush but thats just me. Im sure someone will say dont do it.

I won't say don't, but I will say a chemical flush will more than likely help clog an oil cooler. Make sure the ect and eot read the same after a cold soak. If you don't have a coolant filter, get one asap.

I would say a filter is a good idea as well. Maybe a flush and a filter then chemicals later. But ya, I love chemical flushes! yum!

Thats what I did when I switched to elc, got the restore, restore plus on the shelf. My deltas did not go up or down, 24 this summer, been 18 or so, since it got cold.
