Should I be concerned?

Okay so I know I said I wasn't going to worry about it, but I'm a little concerned.

Just had new OEM oil cooler after having one put in last year along with a BPD EGR cooler, and still having super high oil temps 250*-ish I was already $2k into, still the same problem so I parked the truck after only putting about 50 miles on it.

Last month I took it in for ANOTHER OEM oil cooler, found out it needed HGs. So HGs, ARPs, OEM oil cooler, $4,700 I'm down the road.

Now with just about 200 miles on the truck since all the work, I'm seeing 220-ish EOT, ECT is usually 6-8* behind. Now I understand that it's hot out (96-98) and that affects it somewhat, but I saw this today


Now the coolant temp fluctuates but as many as 12*, the fan comes on if the ECT hits 220* and drops it back down to about 216*

The EOT does fluctuate, but only by 3 or 4* at best. I'm wondering if I might have a weak waterpump. Anyone else?

You may want to have your radiator cleaned out, vatted and rodded out.
Check for restrictions to air flow while your at it. Clean the trash out from between the cac and the radiator you would be surprised what all can get sucked in there.

That's worth a try. I'm wondering if there's crap in it from when I did the flush with restore.

There is allways that possibility which is why I am going to start recomending at least checking for it as a possibility, sine the passages are even smaller than the oil cooler with all the bends to catch crud.

Okay, so $522 for a new BPD water pump and install, and temps aren't climbing as fast at they were, but still hit 221 EOT and 213 ECT. Had the AC on, it's only about 85* outside right now. So, any ideas because right about now I'm ready to set fire to it. Stock tune, no load and 221* EOT, with 550 miles on a new OEM oil cooler, HGs and studs and now a $500 water pump.
