Introduction and Question About Oil Temperature

Hello! I'm new to the forum and new to Diesels. I told myself for my 30th birthday I'd buy a Porsche or a new tow rig...as you can see, the truck took precedent. I'm extremely active in open track days and time attack competitions with an old Honda CRX.

I picked up my brand new 2011 F-250 FX4 back in November and got a killer deal. It replaced a great little 2003 Tundra V8 with little tow power. I only have 5,500 miles on the truck and over the weekend towed down to LA for a big car show.

My question is this...and yes I searched: Should I be worried about 240 degree oil temps? I was headed southbound on I5 over the grapevine towing 6,000 lbs. in 90 degree weather. I let the truck settle into 5th gear at 55mph and it trucked along. Was boosting about 15-20 lbs. and the temps kept climbing until they peaked at 239. They dropped immediately once I crested the climb.

I wasn't even driving like a jerk. I just let the truck do its thing...

Nice truck!!

Those oil temps are normal for the 6.7. The way the oil cooler is routed and where the gauge takes the temp make it look much worse than it really is. You will see the oil temp go that high even in cold weather if you pull on it hard and long enough. The fact it cooled right back down once you topped the hill says everything is A-OK!!

Your truck is doing just like all ours are so keep on truckin.

Mowdoc's answer below. Thanks for the welcome guys and thanks for the quick response Mowdoc. I guess I was relying on the forum software to scale the pic down, but it's fixed now

I meant why is that the answer? Where is it placed that causes it to be so high?

Gotcha. I've been researching an engine diagram online that shows the location, but can't find anything. Will go to my uncle's shop later to see if he can print something up for me that will show the location of the oil temp sensor. I'm curious to see EXACTLY where it's at.
