Post your 2017-2019 oil temps towing

Figure this could be a useful thread. I’m seeing higher oil Temps towing With late model 6.7, mines a 19, then I would have expected.

To get oil Temps you need to go into the dash menu and select the display to be visible on the “engine Information” screen (under engine hours )

I seen 245 oil in 62 OAT towing up a steep grade trailer 24k
Today I’m towing 8k on flat ground 86 OAT with 236 oil

This worries me a bit cause I have to tow my 24k trailer in 115 OAT somewhat often in the summers and I’m nervous what oil Temps I’m going to see.

As the temps rise this summer can I ask you guys post in this thread once in awhile. Included OAT trailer weight and oil temp. Than we can compare and see what the going rate is versus what is concerning / outlier. I know they tested these things so I’m guessing the oil Temps are no big deal

i don't know if this helps much but towing a mustang in 80s OAT at 65 mph and in traffic my oil temps didn't go over 205.

i have a 2016 but they should be the same set up wise. 3.31 gears and 36in tires. i also use tow/haul mode.

I'll be interested as well since I also live in Vegas and will be towing a toyhauler as soon as I get it. The times I towed with my Ram my Oil temps never got above 215 and that was even towing Baker grade in July with an enclosed car hauler.

I was told the Fords run hotter so that has me thinking of installing an oil cooler. I'll switch to full synthetic as well to avoid any oil degradation due to high temps.

The hottest I've seen is 226 towing my 3,500 boat up a long dirt road that is a 15% grade. I was stressing that was really hot. I guess it isn't.

lol there is no 15% grade paved roads. I think 8 is the most they will do. But good data point

For reference Pikes Peak is 7% grade and well known for its steep ascent

My tranny stays near 230 also, I believe ford designed this year group to run hotter. Oil optimum temp is near 220. I’m just concerned the system won’t be able to keep the temp there when the OATs go up this summer.

Not recommending anything, just posting it for informational value. I know that @nighthawk285 installed one, but I don't think he had a cooling problem prior to it.

I've not personally seen 15% but they are out there. San Francisco is full of them albeit short hills. When I lived in NorCal I used to ride my bike in SF and can attest to some hills that were stupid steep.

I do know in Northern NV on State Route 341 going from Hwy 50 to Virginia City there is a good stretch of road that is 10%. The truck route is not as steep and I think it's right around 7% max slope. I do know back in 2000 when the truck route was paved they tried sending truck traffic up the regular car route and there was a large delivery truck that burnt out his clutch trying to get up it. I remember because the Sheriff came down asking for assistance in pulling the truck up the hill. The contractor had to send a large CAT front end loader to drag the truck up the rest of the way to town.
There are others around that are as steep as 12% but I can't remember off the top of my head where.

I said dirt road not paved. I live on a mountain dirt road and yes it is 15%. My driveway is also 15% grade. I know both to be true because my truck reads 15% grade. I live in the NC mountains and I have seen paved roads steeper than 15% grade.
