hot engine and tranny temps on hard climb.

read from edge insight.....day 105*f....17 mile climb 3200ft to 7200ft.7% grade. NO TUNER.

tranny 226* coolant 228* intake air 161* oil 231* egt spike 1407*

FORD engine cluster showed maybe a 1/16th inch increase.truck and trailer grossing max 15000lbs....did have a slide-in camper to add to drag.

gotta tellya...i found this scary....oil,coolant and tranny blinking red warning on the insight. i stopped at the 10 mile mark for 10 minutes to let tranny cool to 200*.....didnt take long to get hot again. the fan didnt kick as much as i would like....seems like ford has it set to come on when temps reach 225* .........that intake air peaked at 161* but stayed mostly 155*f

WHEN YOUR FAN KICKS IN NOW YOU KNOW HOW HOT THINGS ARE GETTING.
