[QUOTE=7.34ever;3189501]Why not take the money from the coolant filter setup and put it towards an egr delete to eliminate that problem immediately? Just sayin...
From everything I've researched, it all starts with coolant (and casting sand) slowly plugging the oil cooler, resulting in higher oil temps. As a lovely side benefit, coolant flow is restricted to the EGR system which screws that system up too. The grand finale is losing head gaskets.
So to me, the first priority is stopping further damage from ocurring. Then I'll do an EGR delete, and if I get lucky, I won't have to replace the oil cooler - yet.
Is this a bad strategy?
