ect low

why does my ect stay so low? would that cause my eot to be high if the t stat is closed not curculating the coolant?

The ECT isn't that bad. Mine runs 184-186 all the time with an EOT of 187-191. Sucks to say, but sounds like your oil cooler is restricted again. Have you flushed the cooling system completely at any point?

yes, i have flushed the cooling system 3 times the last with restore. also installed diy coolant filter this last hg job. my block seams to make alot of rust. i was hoping the filter would have caught most of it but not quiet i guess. does anyone have any better ways to filter the coolant before it goes into the oil cooler?

Using the restore is most likely what caused the cooler to get restricted. Some guys use it with no issues and some use it and have to replace the oil cooler shortly after.

There's sometimes still enough junk in the system to plug a new oil cooler. I've done it myself.
