I need it fixed!!!! I will paypal whoever gets it right
Ok, just giving everyone a head start. Got the truck back today and they said oil cooler. so if anyone has seen my other post about "cooling issue" it has alot of my info in it about my problem but to bring it all up and quick like. The truck is NOT over heating but not running at operating temp. I can drive no load at 65mph ECT will be around 224 and EOT 216-220 EGT is around 850-900ish. I can let the truck sit over night. Start it up, both ECT, EOT will be 88 or 89, same temp. Then i drive the truck and my ECT will climb at a normal-ish rate but within a matter of 5 miles the ECT will be up around 215 and oil is still climbing fairly slow around 185ish. I can floor the truck and it will get up around ECT 225-230 and EOT will be around 200, obviously working it's way up too. Both topping out around the first set of numbers i wrote at 65mph. I can come to a stop from 65mph and the ECT will drop down quickly to like 212-214 and the EOT will be up around 220-221.
The truck has new waterpump, radiator, coolant temp sensor, thermostat, degas bottle cap, CAT ELC coolant, vacuum filled, and was flushed prior to that. I'm at a lost right now with the truck and it seems like I am not ever going to get it fixed. Before I dig into doing a oil cooler I wanted to see how many people here say the same. The truck never pukes coolant, has arp studs with oem headgaskets and never gives any symptoms of a headgasket issue. Just my ECT, EOT temps are higher than normal op temps should be for no load. I could understand these temps if I were towing a 10k trailer up a mountain or something. Thanks.
