Re: Engine temp disparity
Quoting " engine temps at 230". What does that mean coolant or oil? Unless you go into limp mode you are fine.
Diesels are designed to run hot and this isn't a SuperDuty or Cummings engine which both run cold in comparison.
FCA wants the engine and transmission to run hot for efficiency. Note that the Ram was towing a 7800 pound trailer too.
Oil temps below 270F are not an issue.
No where did this guy say he was in limp mode.
By the way 7660 is the typical max weight towing for a RAM 1500 Ecodiesel.
