Truck nightmare or am i just to being dumb?
so usual ran ect 187 and eot 194. while driving down freeway then one day starting puking coolant. took it to a guy Sinister said installs all their parts. and had 21.5 psi in coolant system.... so he said $3110.00 for studs, egr delete, oil cooler, and blank plugs, up pipes and leaking glow pug harness. and thermostat (I did flush and supplied cat elc-1 by zerex and distilled water)
I drained all ford gold coolant and put 2 qrts of vc-9 and filled with garden water. let it run for around 45minutes up and down freeway pushing really hard (ecot and eot both went above 200 multiple times) . let it sit for little bit and opened drain valve on bottom drivers side and heater core line on pass side. and stuck a garden hose in degas fill opening and let it overflow while i did a couple of WOT and let the water pump push stuff out. then ran 2 flushes with flat out distilled water before I drove it up to him.
on the drive back my ect was 192 and eot 201-202 65mph at 90degree F outside called him and he said that's fine you dont need to worry til oil is like 250 something and stuff. I was just upset because now temps are worse and backwards.... went from a 7 degree split to a 10-12 split with EOT higher then ect. I want to trust the guy because sinister flatout said call this guy we dont install our stuff this guy does etc.. he sent me pics of the truck with the cab off and really knew his stuff.
Is this a possible clogged oil cooler, or bad sensor? I just drained my saving account for this truck and honestly Im feeling like burning it to the ground. or is it because of egr delete and different coolant?
sorry just confused and everyone here has been very helpful.
