All done 40k miles ago I am running higher oil temps with my ect stayin 190-204f and my eot are running at 218-230f . What can I do to reduce my difference in the temps? Do I need to do a flush? Any ideas ? Thanks guys

Sadly to say but with those #'s your oil cooler has seen better days. Pretty much only thing you can do is replace it and go another 40 k if all go's well or go the Bullet Proof Diesel route and forget about it for good.

Agreed, did you change coolant while you where at it? Meaning did you get rid of the ford gold coolant? What about a coolant filter? Looks like your doing an oil cooler replacment again.

Heck yeah it helps… lol. It changes the coolant to oil cooler design and
makes it a air to oil cooler. You will NEVER plug that cooler and never have to worry about coolant/oil deltas again. If you have the money is definetly recommend it!

Id also go ahead and go for the UPGRADED or larger cooler if I was gonna do it all over again. Its kinda one of those why not type of things. Overkill is normally just about the correct mixture.....
Also if you can swing it go ahead and get the bypass filter set up. Then you dont have to break it all down at a later time to install it.

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.

Good luck

The heavy duty one (tall version). Same one that Jetjock has on this truck. He posted a photo yesterday in this thread:Relocating BPD Oil Cooler
