Puking Coolant

My truck just started to puke coolant. I am getting an egr delete from RCD. Does the oil cooler need to be replaced? And can the heads be damaged? I dnt have the money for the heads right now. I plan on doing the delete my self. Is there any thing I need to look for? Thanks

Oil cooler needs replacing if the EGR cooler has failed. Look at ECT and EOT and beat on it -- if the oil temp exceeds the coolant temp by 15*, the oil cooler is restricted and must be replaced.

Yes, heads may also be damaged.

After warmed up running fine my ECT and EOT sometimes run just about the same temp usally see no more difference than about 15 degrees.
When towing I can get as much as 30 degrees when it's hot in the summer and pullin a big hill. So my ? Angry Hillbilly is looks and sounds fine to me but when I do my egr delete this spring should all I have to do if temps stay the same as present is just put a rebuilt kit in my oil cooler and maybe tank, wash out the exhaust manifold???
Thanks

My trucks EOT usually stays at 195 and may hit 200, I dont know what the coolant temp is though.
