My new VM 2.8 (Duramax 2.8) in the Colorado only ever gets to 78C "engine temperature"..., and most I've been able to push it to is 81C, with a rapid recovery back to 78.

Find it interesting, as obviously the Dexos 2 oil is running a loooong way from what most of us consider "normal" for a 3.5+ HTHS oil.

Find it interesting on the ability to boil off water and unburned fuel.

Pretty sure that it's a NOx control (Oz Duramx 2.8 has nowehere to add blue), but it's really low compared to where I'm used to.

Yep, that's not quite what I'd be expecting. 78 C isn't terribly cool, at least by older standards, but it's not what I expect these days.

The 6.6s are cold blooded too. To get mine warmed enough to start dropping oil pressure, I have to climb a 13% grade for 10 minutes. DEF use is typically 1L/1000km and the tank hold 28L I'm told.

To avoid DPF issues, I stopped using the fuel tank as a recycle depot to get rid of stale dated 2-stroke, engine oil, hydraulic and transmission fluids.

Not just diesels. I've noticed a few Hondas and a Mercedes or two have ~170F thermostats.

Isn't "engine temperature" coolant temp? If so, then what is the oil temp?

Everything in moderation!

My old International 7.3 IDI (pre-Powerstroke) gets a steady diet of various above mentioned fluids.

If there are "under piston spray jets" - then the oil will exceed 100*C at some point, just maybe not the entire sump at one time.

Interesting how VM now has an agreement with GM..... here, VM has the go-to for small diesels (V6, though) in Dodge/Jeep vehicles. None too terribly reliable from what I'm hearing.

I'm thinking if it has the Duramax name on it, they'll uphold their reputation.

My Accord stays right at 80c water temp so bulk oil isn't much higher. Supposedly Honda went to a 90c thermostat in 2016 Accords.

If you want a hot running diesel buy a LLY duramax and put a trailer behind it.

Interesting just from a data point of view

my 2017 with the 3.2 pentastar(gas)

Usually runs about:
150f-160f transmission temp.
185-195 coolant temp
oil temp near 200f Measured at the pan
but I only have a couple data points on oil temp The other 2 I've seen many times.
