WTH!!! Oil Cooler
Well here is the situation.
1 - Bought truck at 137,100 miles. Had a flush done (they put Gold back in), oil cooler change, and EGR bypass done at PowerStroke Magic in Houston.
2 - Found this site and did a quick cheapo coolant filter set up with a filter in the line feeding the degas and another in the line from the degas to the radiator. Life is good for 20,000 miles with deltas in the 3-6* range.
3 - Thought about getting fancy and installed the Sinister coolant filter. Filter kit came with a Napa 4070 and all was well for a while.
4 -Changed the filter out and used a Wix 24070 about 1,000 miles ago then started to notice deltas increasing. Now they are in the 15-24* range.
5 - Changed the filter back to a Napa 4070 today. Not that it will make a difference since they are the same filter.
Just bad luck or should I have stuck with the cheapo filter set up?
I need to get a filter cutting tool. I still have the original filter removed previously too.
