Since I'm new to diesel engines. Just wonderng whats the highest oil temps you guys are seeing when pulling a boat, rv, or trailer? So far the highest I've been seeing is 219 to 229 when pulling my boat up a bridge. Does anyone know what temp is considered to high or a danger zone for our EDs?

I'd check your manual to be safe. It might be different for each truck depending on the configuration, cab, bed, gears, etc.....

Driving at hwy speeds all gauges in the middle or normal,flat out pulling my 9000b rv climbing a long hill all gauges read just a hair more well within operating range and no annoying fan cutting in and out like a 747 taking off.

Not bad at all, good to see its all holding up well so far. Hopefully it stays that way as time goes on.

Seems normal. I have seen that pulling my toy hauler up a mountain last Summer. Actally that's nowhere near what the synthetic oil we are using can take.


Run on.
