kind of concerned but not sure for what....
so 2004 f350 4 door long bed. 51.9k miles 6in superift, 35s 16in wheels.
2011 new oil cooler, ficm, egr cooler,
oct 2012 new turbo and had bulletproof egr cooler installed. by dealer as part of contract when i bought vehicle (i was really ignorant)
then i installed a dfuser coolant filter (first one was amazing super clean) then did the blue spring mod.
so its been like 3 wks since i looked under the hood and found i had dried coolant on my cap. and a little on the top drivers side of radiator hose...
according to my guages my normal ect is 184, and my normal eot is 188-190. thats crusing at 60-65 on highway. when i goose it for fun or hills etc.. ive only had oil get to 201ish and coolant never above 198.
so is there a problem here? I do not know if i have the upgraded degas bottle but do have the new ford cap.
what you guys think is going on? just bought a used sct now im worried because cant afford a bulletproof oil cooler and head studs... sorry for long story and thanks.
