Oil cooler

Bought the truck 3 weeks ago its a 09 f250 6.4 powerstroke with 168000 stock. The day I got it there was a wrench light came on after about 30 mins of driving it will go off and not return untill around 30-45 mins finally got checked out today turns out my oil cooler is stoping / stopped up and its not covered by extended warranty I purchased with the truck. They want $3200 to repair is there a cheaper maybe diy way to do this or even aftermarket I have seen the one at bullet proof diesel will this work I know its a add on not replacement

Unless you have time and patience its a cab off job. I am not sure what it costs to replace one but this would be a good time to do a flush before you change it. That way when you put the new one hopefully all the crap is out of the system and it wont clog again. Also add a coolant filter and switch to a cat rated EC-1 coolant.

Honestly man before you buy that product do your research. I have heard some bad things about the IPR relocation kit although I have no first hand knowledge of the kit. All I can say is do your research before purchase

BPD oil cooler is THE way to go. IPR does not cure the main problem which is the OEM oil cooler itself.

^^ downside to that is BPD doesn't make a full kit for the 6.4. They only have a half kit. I hope they eventually make a full kit for the 6.4.
