Oil Cooler Replacement Without Removing Turbo and Intake?
Can it be done?
The reason I ask is I did my EGR delete and Oil Coller replacement last yr and on occasion the truck would get hot. My deltas are also anywhere from 5-20 differnece at times. I have changed the coolant filter several times and with the exception of one time, has always been fairly clean.
Yesterday the wife was pulling a horse trailer running 70-75 and it got hot a couple of times, by hot I mean the ECT went to 230 and then back down. The oil temp was hot as well. She slowed to 65 and it seemed to be ok. She added about a gal of water when she got to where she was going after it cooled down.
I should also add that this summer when we moved and I was pulling a gooseneck stock trailer about 30 miles one way several times, it hit the 230 mark as well. I added about a gal of of CAT ELC and all was well. I assumed that because I had changed about 4 coolant filters and not added fluid that that was the reason for the low level.
Any one else heard of this?
At times when just having parked and shutting off, you can smell coolant up front but no leaks.
