how many degrees diffrence is it suppost to be, because i forget ...i had to have mine changed because of the same reason but i forgot the degree's they should be apart.......hahaha damn its early the answer was right in front of me ...sorry ....well you might have to change it out ....they do get plugged and it doesnt allow the coolent to flow proper witch makes the oil hotter

Dude, if your temperature difference is only 8 - 10 degrees in the city, and 14 - 15 on the highway, then there's nothing wrong. Ford's spec is for a MAXIMUM difference. 10 degrees is less than 15 degrees, so you're on the safe side.
