Just to give a few details on this job as well.
260,000 KM on the truck.
Deltas were within about 5, never more than 7 degrees until recently.
Seems that the thermostat is stuck open. On a 20 minute drive on the highway it wouldn't get up to 190 degrees.
Sat mostly around 176 ~ 180.
Not sure if any EGR delete was done.
It has orange coolant in it, but not sure if it's regular orange or some CAT EC-1 type stuff. Any way to test?
Figured that first things first, I'm going to put in a coolant filter.
I just received my IPR high flow coolant filter, that I want to run on the truck for several thousand KM's if I can to filter out as much crap as I can, then I plan to do a coolant flush, as well as an EGR delete and I'm thinking the remote oil cooler set up. All IPR gear.
So when I do the Thermostat, I plan to install the Coolant filter as well.
