    Didn't know there was a text limit in this area. Here is the rest of what I wrote! LOL

    My fan roars at 218*. But, in seeing the readings in print, the fan can actually be increasing before that, I just don't hear it. Cruising in the summer unloaded, the fan can run around 500-600 rpms. Towing, it will see 1600 Rpms through city driving. 3600 rpms while climbing.

    I try to catch the EOT before it reaches 230-234, then I lift my foot to keep it from going much higher.

    Hope this eases your mind a bit.

    Out here in the mountains of the west, I can see 221* ECT with the fan roaring and easily have the EOT at 236* during some climbs. I lost a lot of info on my last computer that showed live readings while pulling. Interesting to see the ECT and EOT along with RPMs and Fan speeds. ( I used the Torque App for these)

    During these pulls, before tuning, I would drop the truck into third gear and leave the RPMs up higher. Helps with temps. With tuning, Matt's Unlimited Tow tune, I let the tune do the work. My trailer is a 26.5 ft travel trailer. It, loaded, weighs in at just above 8000#. Plus all the crud in the bed, that might add another 1000#.

    After cresting a hill, the ECT drops very quickly, EOT follows it down. I can see ECT hit 195 and EOT still at the 228* mark.It doesn't worry me. The coolant will really cool fast.

    Shoot you a text shortly, but sounds like you need some friction modifier.

    I'd love to help you out but I deal with the transmission guys not the engine guys. So I really don't have anyone that I could ask engine questions to.

    I don't know what made the HPOP fail, but I have a suspect. I think the pump was 'starved' by a clogged inlet screen. Ford, in their wisdom, used a plastic screen that fairly easily clogs up with carbon junk from the oil.

    If I were you, I would get it fixed pronto. You don't want this to fail when you are away from home. It will leave you stranded and at the mercy of whatever tow service and engine service you can get. I was 700 miles from home when mine failed.

    Lee,
    I have it on my phone. I will download it and send it of to you. It sounds exactly like yours but it's louder in the cab and is speed sensitive. It is also intermittent. Drives me nuts lol.
    Cheers Don
