Oil cooler ?.

How can you tell if the oil cooler is getting clogged? How do you prevent it from happening?

FYI, i did an egr delete about 3 months ago.

Need something to monitor your ect- engine coolant temp and eot- engine oil temp. Also you can flush your system and get a coolant filter

You need a coolant filter
You can order here
Performance Machine & MFG. 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel Coolant Filtration System
need to put 5-7000mi on before you do a coolant flush then you need to get some gauges like the Edge CTS just install mine today up and running in 2 minutes what a gauge been running the older Edge forr 2 years this will tell you everything you need to know about your truck the main thing is ECT-EOT max 15* i think if you are at 10* your oil cooler is getting plugged for the casting sand and silicate drop out from the Ford Gold junk coolant, it can't take the heat need a CAT EC-1 Rated ELC coolant but you need to flush the system first before adding ELC coolant. With the CTS you can run 8 things at one time.

What happens if you have a 20* delta and don't change the cooler? I have a egr delete, but don't have the money to do the cooler right at this time. I am just wondering what could/will happen if I continue driving it. Sorry, not trying to steal op thread.

Not trying to steal op's thread either but I have a stock 6.0 with insight. I've been monitoring my ect and eot and I have 6-7* deltas but on highway at 70+ it will run 12 degree deltas with ect ranging from 190-192. Any info would be great. But once again not trying to hijack just looking for info.

Keep your eye on your temperatures, and drive it. Make sure your oil temps don't reach any higher then 235* and just wait until you have time to do the swap.
whats your coolant temperature??? It should be 190* if the thermostat is working properly..

All these wide ranges of deltas from coolant to oil temperature just means the oil cooler is being clogged. Just watch your oil temperatures and you should be fine. Mine is at 10* at 70mph and I have no concerns.

You can get a coolant filter set p to help prevent these problems but a normal 6-7 degree delta is fine, if it gets around 10-12 for short periods of time I wouldn't even care about that because it's all relative to what you were doing, on ramp, hills, 80mph, etc.

I was just wondering because on a 250 mile trip my deltas were 11-14 running 70 mph. Plus I just bought my sinister coolant filter kit yesterday.
