the rule is for the not to differ more than 15*...ive only seen mine get to 6 deg differance. i would think you would need to flush atleast. one of the pros will pop in a min an tell you more.

So, if I'm reading this right, your minimum difference is 18* and up to as much as 36*? Yeah, that's a problem. Your oil cooler's no longer doing its job like it should and more problems are to come it you don't get on that. I would recommend looking into some BPD products sooner rather than later.

Your limp mode light should be coming on. I believe it comes on when these is 15* difference and the truck goes into full limp mode around 30-40* difference. Don't quote me on the temps, but I know they are close.

You wont start burning up stuff till around 250 and above on the oil side. But that does not mean you should keep driving it. It needs a VC-9 flush and a new cooler.

After I did a VC-9 flush and a new cooler, my oil temps are normally 2-3* lower than my coolant.
