New oil cooler still high EOT?
I just replaced my oil cooler, flushed and switched over to elc coolant. Also did a coolant filter set up.
When I flushed, I did it with some Peak coolant system cleaner..
I did the first 3 or 4 flushes with hose water. I did these flushes before the cooler went in. I also did these flushes by just opening the drain and dropping the lower hose. The I did another 3 or 4 flushes using just distilled water. On the last flush, I opened the drivers side block drain plug also. I have the 5 gal water bottles from the first few drains on distilled. It looks clear?
When I did the oil cooler, the hpop screen had some junk on it. Now, it was new, in Dec, when I did the hpop.. And I switched over to Rotella T6 5/40 at that time. Before that, I had no way to monitor EOT/ECT. So I have no idea how long it was running hot. After the hpop, I noticed the temps were way off. ECT avg 190 EOT avg 225-240
So I did the oil cooler. Now I've got ect:195 eot:220
Did I not flush good enough?
Would elc mixing with ford gold do this?
Could the oil be the problem?
Oil filter? Seeing as how the hpop screen was dirty?
I used a napa coolant filter #4070 dosent say charged filter anywhere on it?
My degass does have a very tiny leak? But when I pop the cap, it has pressure?
What else could it be?
