Fluid Temperatures

Does anyone know at what temperature does your engine oil, tranny oil, Rad fluid, cylinder head temp, etc. etc. become too high?

Those with the Gryphon have the ability to see these different temps but I'm not sure how hot my fluids are able to get before breaking down and causing damage.

I wouldn't mind finding this out either, you can set alarms for when the fluids hit a certain temperature with the Edge so I'm sure it's the same with the Gryphon


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!

I tow a 5000lb boat in the summer and I'll also be hauling my camper around aswell. But I thought it would be good for those of us with the Gryphon/Edge to know. How about our new Ford tech, he would probably know.

the fluid manufacturer's spec sheet would tell you. Go to their website
