Oil cooler?

Any insight on what the truck will start doing when the oil cooler is on its way out? I don't have any exhaust temp gauges to know if it's running any hotter. I have an early 04'. Thanks guys

Oil temp will rise, eventually it will rupture and allow oil to mix with coolant or vise/versa. You need a monitor solution like edge. An exhaust temp guage will not monitor your oil cooler....

You'll need to find out what your engine oil and your engine coolant temps are. If they're more than 15* apart after driving for ~20 min at 60mph on flat ground, your oil cooler is clogged.

ALso, you have to be unloaded, and the coolant temp needs to be around 190* while performing this test

oil cooler can fail in two different ways. it can blow (coolant and oil mix) or it can get restricted. if your not monitoring your temps than you will know your oil cooler blows when the oil is in the coolant. and you will know when its restricted when the egr cooler blows and starts eating coolant and blowing smoke

Thanks for the reply. I've noticed when my truck starts to get warm it fells like there is no power there (doesn't feel like the turbo is producing anything) Every so often the truck will run normal. I noticed it after pulling a trailer. Somebody told me that it was the oil cooler.....

not likely the oil cooler, when the oil cooler goes out, it will make it pretty obvious. initially you won't know but it will fail hard when it does.

I think they meant intercooler, not oil cooler.

Is say turbo vanes most likely. Try getting on it hard a few times and see if that helps
