Oil cooler has failed. Have fun! What mods does the truck have? What year? Mileage?

Oil cooler is pretty easy to do. On top of the motor underneath the oil filter. Change out the egr cooler or better yet, delete it while you are in there.. You also have to clean all your hoses and such, clean the radiator, do a flush. Might as well add a coolant filter and some ELC while you are doing it...

Intake gaskets are reusable but I would replace (cheap insurance), plus you get all the gaskets with the intake gasket kit. There is an egr delete on ebay for $150 shipped. Best price I have seen on one of these.
