How long before the inevitable?

I have a genisys diagnostic tool by OTC. Plugged it up today to check my deltas....damn...

Ect-194

Eot - 245

Cruising at 60 unloaded. Cruise set. AC on. 85* ambient.

How long before the cooler clogs completely?

Were talking mid 40-60* deltas...

You're plugged pretty completely now and you want to address this asap before it becomes more expensive for you.

What's my best option aside of bulletproofing? I don't have 5k laying around right now. Flush?

Would this be covered under the warranty? I just bought the truck last week and one of the selling points was that it still had a few k miles of the 100k mile warranty available. The 5 years is up but there's 6k miles left. I called the service dept before checking my deltas just to ask about the warranty and the dealer I bought it from said if I had a problem they would have to determine IF it was covered under warranty.

The paperwork plainly said last Thursday (day I bought it) that it was still covered under warranty

Replace the oil cooler, of course flushing first, but it's unlikely flushing will help in this case because of the large delta the cooler is likely pretty plugged up.

If you have a warranty I would absolutely go that route, also if you just bought it (from a Ford dealer?) last week they should know better, so shame on them!

Anyone ever had dealings with a vehicle that was out of warranty time but still under mileage?

My deltas were only 25 apart and my cooler was 100% plugged. The oil cooler was packed to the top with brown sludge on the coolant side.

4/06

The coolant gague reads normal...but the genisys tells the tale.

With these deltas Id expect it to blow and still be within 100k miles...I'm at 95700 now.
