06 f250 6.0l heating up while towing

Looking for some help. I have an 06 f250 6.0l and I was towing my 28ft toy hauler and the temp would spike quickly on steep grades. At 55 mph. I would slow down to about 35 mph and the temp would go down to midway as quick as it went up. At the first stop I put 1 gallon of coolant in. Over the week of camping, I put 3 more gallons in and it would still spike up on the steep grades. Any ideas??

Ruptured EGR valve, possibly blown HG's . Pull your EGR valve and check for moisture in the hole. If there is, and you don't have any coolant puking from the degas bottle, it's probably just a blown EGR cooler. If it is, BE SURE TO REPLACE THE OIL COOLER AS WELL.

That's a lot of coolant though, good luck

Most likely egr cooler has ruptured. And yes replace oil cooler as well. If the egr cooler is blown the oil cooler us to blame

If you're not mechanically inclined, you should just pay someone to diagnose and repair

Well my teenager did an EGR delete on his uncles truck after seeing me do quite a few so you should be able to do it yourself, it's just a little time consuming. Also, as already stated DO NOT WAIT or you'll be facing a bigger bill down the road when you hydro-lock your engine.

Shooting from the hip, it sounds like a blown EGR cooler. Probably from a clogged oil cooler.
