Possible to "save" an oil cooler?
I didn't have money to do the oil cooler at the same time I did my egr delete this past weekend, which sucks, because I was right there at it. I kinda needed to delete the egr now because I just had straight water in it, and with winter coming, I needed to be able to put coolant in it that wouldnt leak back out. Plus, my motor was just about hydrolocked, and didn't want it to be sitting with coolant in the cylinders (even had to change the oil as it was very water conataminated looking.)
Long story short, I've ran the restore through it, and the restore plus through it, and now have straight water (with 4 gallons of ultra elc waiting in the back seat, till I finish flushing the system) I've been keeping a close eye on ect and eot, and I've noticed the more I flush, the smaller the delta (temp difference) gets. I'm wondering if perhaps flushing with the restore and restore plus and then lots and lots of water if I'd be able to kinda "restore" the oil cooler to a usable/sufficient state? Part of me knows I'm hoping against hope, and just being stingy with money... but realistically if my oil temps stay decent...what would it hurt?
