*#@%#!*$^#in Oil Cooler, AGAIN!!!
Sorry about the "another oil cooler thread" but couldn't find any useful info in the ten million other oil cooler threads.
I just replaced my oil cooler less than 8,000 miles ago. Hauling the excavator today 48* delta. I know you don't check deltas when towing, but I shouldn't have a oil temp of 236* and water temp of 188*. So WTF..... Cruising 65mph for about 15-20 mins 22-25* delta
Little history, truck has 211K miles on it, I tore it all apart at 204k. I put in 190/30's from warren and new oil cooler, trans cooler, radiator, oem head gaskets, had heads checked and decked. Put it all back together, and fired up on 4-5th crank. Deltas were 2-3* difference, and have been slowly getting worse ever since. I am running cat ELC, and have a coolant filter.
I bought the oil cooler from sunrise ford, it came with instruction sheet from Maxx Force. Im assuming thats the oem replacement, is that correct? Im not looking to buy the bullet proof kit right now(want to get stage 3 turbo first,lol).
What else could be clogging it? I had the truck apart for almost 3 months, the water jackets in the block looked a little rusty when it all went back together, so i dunno if it has all broke free and went straight to the oil cooler or what. I guess I'm going to buy another oil cooler, and see what happens. Any suggestions, comments, or questions to help me with this are greatly appreciated.
