Oil cooler problem

I'm pretty sure my oil cooler is compromised, my temps usually differ around 20-35 degrees when traveling down the highway at 70-75 mph, what I'm worried about is my head gaskets blowing, I have an egr delete so would tha stop my head gaskets from giving up?

Possibly. However, if your oil continues to run too hot, it will breakdown earlier than normal and lead to other failures. At some point the oil cooler itself may fail due to thermal difference or corrosion.

Well the truck already runs rough until it reaches about 140-150 degrees, I'm sure it has plenty of problems

I would worry about the oil cooler rupturing and the oil contaminating the cooling system. Coolant hoses don't do very well when oil is run thru them. Plus the OEM water pump has plastic impellers and usually warp or break from they ing to pump a mixture of coolant and oil. As far as your rough running issue... What is your FICM KOEO and running while cold? Have you tried Archoil or RevX? Might be stiction in the injectors as well....

Well I changed my oil last night, it didn't show any discoloration that I could tell, I have a coolant filter on the way, I tried rev-x before so maybe it's my ficm, which I plan on changing that and the oil cooler soon and flushing the entire system of the ford gold

Why not get a monitor to verify all your problems… torque app for android phone can be had for under $10 and a cheap Bluetooth/OBDll reader for under $20 would work if your on a limited budget. Since this option exist… the only reason not to have a monitor on your 6.0 is because you don't have a smart phone. Either that or your ignorant just kidding

I have an Edge CTS and SCT X3, so I know what the readings are unless there is something those don't pick up

Because you said this I thought you didn't have a monitor… if your FICM volts are below 46v koeo and running cold theN it's your FICM.

I don't have a scan gauge to monitor the volts, I would have to check it with a bolt meter on the screws
