Re: Scangauge now monitors engine oil temp for the 6.0psd.

Hey Guys,

I just picked up my new to me 2006 6.0 EB from Chris at Ujoint. I don't know what I don't know. So I'm traveling right now and the EOT temps seem a bit high to me.

More info

35" tires
Empty cargo van
4.56 gears
Doing 65mph
Egr delete
40,000 btu tranny cooler obstructing a bit more rad.
Aluminess front bumper
New oil cooler
Not towing!
Fan is running (properly? Not sure?)


On rolling hilly east coast interstate it's running 212-215 FWT with EOT 219-223

Thoughts?

Thanks for any help.

Jim

Re: Scangauge now monitors engine oil temp for the 6.0psd.

Oh, I forget to tell you ambient temp.

Last night 55
Today 80

FWT and EOT are in the same range regardless.

I wonder what is going to happen when I hook up a 9000lb trailer???

Re: Scangauge now monitors engine oil temp for the 6.0psd.

Your temps seem normal to me. 7-8 degree delta between water temp and oil temp.

Remember, it is an oil cooler. In order for it to cool, the oil temp is normally higher than the water temp. The bigger the delta, the more effective the cooling.

I feel good about the delta. It's the high EOT at 220 not towing that worries me. The pick ups seem to have way lower EOT's, which may be why the detuned our vans.

What kind of normal and max EOT's are you and everyone seeing.

Max EOT in van = ???

Do I need a water pump?

Rad?

Ideas?

Should I just relax and drive?

Maybe toss the scan guage...

In warm weather with the AC running, I am seeing almost exactly the same temps on the scangauge.

No towing, but fully loaded.

All good.

Re: Scangauge now monitors engine oil temp for the 6.0psd.

I was so concerned about the operating temperatures from the beginning that I changed Air Filter , Exhaust from the Cat Back , changed the thermastat changed from the Scanguage after running on a Mustang Dyno to a direct means of measurement that provided temperatures exactly the same as the Dyno and three degrees average lower than what was provided with the Scanguage . oil is filtered with the correctly installed Amsoil system that is changed every three to four thousand miles as well as Herbs great suggestion for a Mag Hy Tec Oversizes Transmission Pan . After all of that I dropped from average temps at 214 to 224 on grades in temperature to a current average of 205 to 220 .our van loaded is right at 11,000 pounds and I frequently pull a Utility trailer with misc. Pontoon PWC and and my Wife's Can Am two up Limited .I am still not happy but somewhat more secure than when it was new !

Re: Scangauge now monitors engine oil temp for the 6.0psd.

Ok, your water temps are high.

When I first put an aftermarket bumper on my van we had some overheating issues, seems the bumper was blocking airflow to the bottom 1/3 of the radiator. Diesel vans are marginal for cooling capacity at best and some aftermarket bumpers make it worse.

On mine, I was able to see the problem, the radiator had normal bug debris except the bottom 1/3 was clear of bugs. No airflow = no bugs. I had to make a bunch of 2" holes in the bumper to restore airflow.


Could you have similar issues? Some SMBs with Aluminess bumpers have added air scoops below the bumper to add airflow.

Re: Scangauge now monitors engine oil temp for the 6.0psd.

I forgot that I installed an Air Scoop fashioned after the one that Scatter was so kind to share with us and although I am sure that it didn't hurt the cooling process it did not make any noticeable difference . The 2007 Aluminess Bumpers are quite cumbersome in their design especially with Warn Power Winch w/ compressor built in to it that creates a noticeable air reduction to the main Grill area
I am still entertaining the custom design of a scooped hood for our SportsMobile that will allow greater air flow in and around the engine compartment .
