If it ain't broke don't fix it. That said get a monitor in the truck and monitor engine vitals e.g; EOT, ECT, ICP v, FICM v, Batt v, Trans Temp, IPR %, VGT% and EGR % to start. If you see a spread of 15* or more between ECT and EOT then you are going to need a new oil cooler in the near future. If it's under a 15* spread than let it go with the regular ford gold coolant and coolant filter. When it does clog then flush and replace the oil cooler and continue to filter the coolant. If you need a monitor let me know I can get you taken care of.

Our truck arnt really for low budget's. If your deltas are 15* or more you need to change it becouse you risk oil cooler rupture. Then your really up sh1ts creek. Its not too bad if you can do all the work yourself.

Army. If you are on a budget for a monitor than look into scangauge II it's readily available at autozone and work great for a budget monitor under $200.

Bulletproof Diesel also sells the ScanGuage II for a great price, and they already have all the PID's entered (PID's are the codes you have to enter into the ScanGauge in order to tell the ScanGauge what to monitor).
