That's why I put it in "quotes" every time I've used it.......I've never really seen anyone ever have the "problem".

OK so if I understand correctly, it will not be a problem unless you let the truck idle for extended periods. Right? If I'm gonna let the truck sit while cranked, I ususally set my TS chip to the high idle setting. Is this the right thing to do? I know it helps the AC stay cooler. But it doesn't help my mileage.

Another word for it would be cylinder wash/washdown.

This problem only occurs when you let your truck idle for long periods of time (in excess of 5 min.) quite often (more than 2-3 times a day) as the truck continues to idle the cylinder temps. drop resulting in some fuel not being burnt. Eats at the rings and causes excessive premature wear.

The high idle feature helps as long as it keeps the EGT's above 300-400* while it's on the setting. Another option is to engage an exhaust brake while idling to create back PSI on the system and raise EGTs.
