What is the normal operating temp for the Engine Oil and the Coolant?

My thoughts are that my EOT doesn't seem to budge above or below 90* when up to temp, lately been 60 during the day and 35-40 at night. The ECT seems to stay around 190*-192* normal city driving, and on the highway it jumps to 196* and at times will go up to 200* if I'm heavy into the throttle, but I try to stay out of it.
Just want to take care of things if I have a potential problem starting here.
Thanks Guys.

James.

what are you using to check eot? It should be around 5 degrees warmer than the ect cruising, and after idling a while dead even. Sounds like either the sending unit is bad, or if you're using a scangauge, it's using the wrong PID.

SCT Livewire. Pretty sure there is only one PID for the EOT.

SCT uses "CELSIUS" to display engine oil temp. Which would make that 194 degrees Fahrenheit. This is probably the third post I have replied to in two weeks about this.

on my 6.0 ECT was almost always low to mid 180s and EOT was 7 to 10 above that.

6.4 ECT stays right around 190 all the time and EOT is almost always 0 to 2 degrees different.
