datalog eot ect with x2??? How to help

is it possible to read my 6.0s eot and ect to determine if my oil cooler is bad? My truck is 04 with 100,300 miles on it. My HG were done w studs at about 65,000 egr deleted about 12,000 ago. My truck has never had an oil cooler on it. I m puking a little coolant around the degas bottle. I replaced my degas bottle and a brand new cap today still puking alittle coolant. I dont have the tea kettle sound and it doesn't look like I ve had a coolant bomb blow up under my hood? Just wanting Ideas as where to go as my warranty is gone now its on my dime and don't want to play games.

Yes indeed. If you plan on keeping this truck for a while, I'd get an AE scanner for it with the Ford package. It will save you a fortune in diagnostic costs, especially now that the truck is out of warranty.

Or, if you don't want to spend that much money, you could get a ScanGauge or a DashDAQ. ScanGauges are a bit of a pain though, because they don't have the Ford specific sensors built in... you have to program them as an XGauge.
