High Deltas EOT/ECT after oil cooler replacement
I have searched and searched and even read through the 54 page thread about this and havent found what i need to know.
I did a full "flush and fill" then did chemical flushes with restore and restore plus prior to beginning any work. used 30 gallons of water.
I replaced the oil cooler (oem), thermostat (oem), oil (amsoil) and filter (motocraft), and coolant filter (napa). Using Cat 1 ELC zerex.
1. Oil filter housing doesn't drain oil (maybe unrelated)
2. ECT is around 190-192 with EOT up to 210-215. cruising at 65mph.
3. Pigtail for oil temp sensor has copper showing. Ill post a pic when yahoo decides to work.
Any ideas why my oil temp is 20*+?
