It's actually just replacing the cooler itself...I guess people say rebuild cause your changing out the core of the assembly...Which is like changing out an engine in a vehicle with the hood/front clip being the cover.

Mine stays around 9 as well. I was wondering if this is normal or if its on its way to being a problem again.

Rebuild, replace... Still have a 17 degree delta!! Looks like a flush is in order! Think I can save the coolant since its only a week old?

Ok I talked to my mechanic(tarangos diesel repair in santa Paula ca) he said that the truck has to stabilize before taking a reading! Even though my ect is at 190 he said that it wasn't at full operating temp? He Said you have to run it for atleast 30 min and have ect at 198 -200 and take your reading there.. He said everything will be stabilized then.. he assured me he flushed it and it is a brand new oil cooler.. I guess I will take his word for it.. He does warranty his work so I will just enjoy it now..

Sorry but if it has that spread your oil cooler is restricted. From first hand experience with a new Ford oil cooler they should be within a couple degrees of eachother.

FYI my truck runs about 190* coolant temp most of the time, even on the highway. I think that is close to normal operating temp. Just my 2c

190 is normal operating temp. give it a few days and see where you're at then, you may still have a little air in the system
