I'm sorry to say that the guys posting above are spot-on. Your oil cooler is clogged. Options are another OEM one (plus adding a coolant filter to prevent re-plugging) or a BPD cooler. And before you do a simple cost comparison and think you can do several OEM oil cooler change outs for the price of the BPD unit, there are many people that have had multiple OEM oil cooler failures (plugging and also rupturing), some as soon as 15K to 20K after the previous changeout. Not worth it in my opinion, especially after seeing my friends truck with what looked like gray mayonaise in the degas bottle when his oil cooler ruptured.
My oil temps have always been good, but since the truck is currently down for studs and head gaskets (and all of the other ususal component upgrades), I'm also having the BPD oil and EGR coolers installed at the same time. I want to pay for it once, and dont want to go back into the motor any time soon.
