The reason I said that was that I was going to delete her EGR cooler (it was getting real bad) and flush her coolant system then drive it for a week and do the oil cooler the next weekend. Sure it's more work but it would keep from clogging the new oil cooler. I would definitely flush it now then you can do both projects (egr delete + oil cooler if needed) at once later. But her egr was getting bad and sure enough her oil cooler is toast too so I'm waiting on that to arrive, probably tomorrow and doing the oil cooler this weekend. Now I have no choice but to flush after both are done.
If her egr wasn't so bad I would have flushed first. She actually had green coolant in hers that the previous owner put in there.
AAHH, but this is not your thread and your situation is different than the OP.
He needs to monitor/check the health of the motor first to see which direction he need to go.
