Got mine today but now I wonder if the "gunk" won't mess up the oil cooler? Any thoughts?

Bump!

I'm skeptical. I don't know if these guys are aware of the 6.0 I just don't understand how it can break it down into a harmless gel and have it pass through such small passages, like the 6.0 oil cooler. I'd try it but not as a guinea pig.

A "gel like material" is what clogs up our oil coolers. Remember we dont have normal oil coolers. I would not use anything in the 6.0 that causes gelling.

I've searched the internet and can't find anything on anyone using it in a 6.0. A few 7.3's and they said it worked great. I emailed the company but as of yet got no response. I've got a coolant filter but the thought of "gunk" going through my brand new oil cooler makes me scared to do it.

It has great reviews from big diesel guys and I also wondered IF it cleans so well would it "unplug" a plugged oil cooler? If the rust and Ford gold crap turn to gel then it might. I just wanted to help lower the temps towing and lube my seals.

Maybe someone on here has used it and it works well or it fooked up their oil cooler so we all know the real answer...

You cannot unplug a plugged oil cooler. I have used almost every chemecal, boiling water, reguular flush, reverse flush, reverse flush with chemicals and boiling water restore and restore + and VC9. My deltas are still over 15*. Also the 7.3l has a different oil cooler design.

I would put a filter system on first, says it won't plug passages. If you already have problem what could it hurt. A cleaner that you can leave in until
you can change parts or flush system & see if it cleaned out oil cooler.
Call their tech line if they have one.
