NOT AGAIN! Deltas bad! 5k on cooler!

Ok so here is my headache! I did a full complete, took me three days, super flush on my truck swapping it over to ELC before we did my studs, oil cooler, and egr delete! I Did restore and restore plus twice each then flushe for 2 days with tap water then finally with distilled water!

About 2 months later I had the trans cooler inside my radiator bust and fill my new fresh ELC up with trans fluid. So I change the radiator and flush for 2 days with Restore plus, simple green, Purple Power, tap water, then finally with 24 more gallons of distilled water before I added the ELC!

Soi sold my gauge setup about two months ago and finally got me a PHP FICM tuner this week and using it for gauges!

And low and behold my deltas are running 20-24! Only 5k on this oil cooler!

Anybody think it might be anything else besides oil cooler! I would throw one in if I wasn't so anal about the flushing process! That is the only thing that, makes me doubt the oil cooler!

It's the oil cooler, maybe it got clogged up with the trans mixture. After the trans cooler bust, did your flush include a reverse flush of the oil cooler? How long did you reverse flush the oil cooler and did you use hot water to do so?

There is a oil cooler bypass valve built into the oil cooler housing that could be bad or bypassing.

Good point, but the bypass valve would need to be missing the spring or missing all together. I did several tests with the bypass valve regarding the effect on temperature and it has little influence on the oil temperature *unless* it isn't there or the spring missing, but yes that can do it too.

I didnt do a "reverse flush"! I would add the stuff and drive till the motor was up to temp plu some and then do it again! I mean I drove like 20 miles each for Restore+, Simple green x2, Purple Power, Several times with tap water, and alot of distilled flushes!

Im gonna check on the spring! I cant remember if we messed with it or not!


The guy that had the truck befor me did a jacked up oil cooler job( I mean took the cab off for the oil cooler) then filled with green antifreeze! Messed up rad. and all. Before i got it he done put a new rad and oil cooler on it. I bought it cheap and been tinkering with it since.

You *might* have a chance by reverse flushing, give it a shot what do you have to lose? Of course check that bypass valve too.

You got a link to the reverse flush!

I should buy stock in Zerex ELC. if I keep flushing!

This will make 3!

I thought you were referencing this no don't buy the stock, if you are running water only with a 2 degree or less difference then add the antifreeze, else replace oil cooler.

You need to let the Restore/Restore Plus etc. run for 1.5 -2 hrs before flushing them out. 20 miles isn't giving them time to work.

Got questions about your 6.0?
