Well the SCT tuner is not the way to start out need gauges something like the Edge Insight CTS to check deltas on the ECT-EOT max 15* you need to know the health of the motor first plus you need a coolant filter to remove the casting sand that helps plug the oil cooler run 5-7000mi then do a coolant flush and dump the Ford Gold coolant and add some CAT EC-1 Rated coolant.
I would get a new cap for the degasing tank then park nose down hill some and pull the egr valve if damp or wet egr cooler is shot then you must change the oil cooler at the same time. Did you see any white smoke if egr valve is dry just soot then i would think HG's

If it was a HG you would be loosing coolant. Ther is a little pressure in my coolant system after sitting overnight too. I think its actually a good sign, showing no leaks at all.
