Cold and hot hand
I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 5.7 liter Hemi mine my
truck the cold and the hot hand the hand in the
stand in the cold and when I got out the truck to
check the oil the oil is very hot as if the icooling the
radiator fluid is not cooling it could it be the
thermostat but the truck is not running hot what
could cause this problem the hand is staying on
The temperature gauge, sending unit or associated wiring could be bad. If you drive more than about 10 to 15 miles the oil will actually be hotter than the coolant by 10 to 20 degrees. It is normal for the oil to be hot on an engine that is at operating temperature. Make sure it is not getting hot or damage to the engine is possible. Sounds like you need a mechanic to look at it.
