I need some help and wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone can provide their insight.
Last October, my HPOP
STC fitting failed, thus causing me to spend $$$ to get the issue fixed. While in the shop, I elected to have the following work done: EGR
delete, new HPOP
, new Oil cooler, new FICM
, new Powermax turbo and custom tunes from Innovative Diesel.
Last weekend, performed routine oil change, this time I elected to run the Rotella T6 5-40w. After performing the oil change, my ECT and EOT
where within 5-10* when running on the highway. Running temps were as follows: ECT 180-190, EOT
190-200, outside air temp was approx 90*.
This weekend we went camping and took our 38 foot 5th wheel. While towing, my temps were as follows: running on flat ground ECT would be 200-210, EOT
would be 210-220. The real concern was when pulling up a grade, the ECT would jump to 220 and EOT
would rise as high as 255, YIKES! Also, the truck had a lot more noise, almost like a washing noise (not sure if that's the best description). Could I have a fan clutch issue?
Before the HPOP
failure last year, my ECT and EOT
wouldn't rise any higher than the following ECT 220 and EOT
230-235...so with that said, why the sudden increase? Could it be the oil?
