For starters, your gonna need to check the delta between the Engine Oil Temp (EOT) and Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) if the you get more than 15* delta when the motor is fully warmed up (190*) while cruising at hy-way speed then your oil cooler needs attention. The cheapest route would be to get a hold of someone's scan tool that can read those temps. A ScangaugeII will run you about $160 and can monitor those temps and more.

As far as a quick reply, things around here get slow on the week-ends. The best thing to do is read,and read somemore. The more you read the more you'll understand the issues and myths.
