Yup, the oil cooler is not the issue, it is the coolant and the build up in the system.
I would do a coolant flush and put some EC1 or ELC rated coolant. Along with a coolant filter. I have the Diesel Site coolant filter system.
Napa auto parts has "ZEREX Extended Life heavy duty formula Diesel Ready" EC-1 rated coolant that I bought for my truck. It is ~$17 per gallon. Only get the concentrated coolant, what ever it may be.
