Coolant filter?

It looks like my oil cooler is plugged! EOT delta's high! I am thinking I am going to put a filter on. I did some reading and found where some with filters had delta's going up and changed or cleaned there coolant filter's and temps came down.
Question is can a filter lower my delta's or will a flush and filter solve my problem?
Or is a new oil cooler and a filter the only way?

Once the oil cooler is clogged, it's impossible to unclog it. Start prepping for a oil cooler replacement, and add a coolant filter while your at it.

It is highly unlikely, but it may be worth a try in the short-term. If Ford recommends a new cooler when the delta is >15*, there is a good reason for it. Think about it this way, if your cooler is plugged or partially plugged, do you want to back-flush that debris to other parts of your coolant system? No, you would remove the part and try to clean it separately. But you have now way of knowing how well you did because you can not see inside the cooler. Change it now, before it causes a bigger problem. However, the pre-flush and filter is a good start!

I guess that was my first thought. I wish I had the CTS prior to the flush when I bought the truck. It would have been interesting to know if it was plugged then or if the flush loosened up a bunch of crap.
Hope warranty will cover it! Find out Monday.

What you are referring to is people who have the ipr filter and oil cooler relocation kit, when their ipr filter clogs, they can clean it and the deltas return to normal. Your deltas are likely irreversible, join the club. But by all means you should install a coolant filter regardless, get it filtering now if you can before you install another oil cooler.

Ok, makes sense. I think I will go with the Sinister, looks simple and reasonably priced. I think I will order one tomorrow, probably get here well before I get an answer from warranty and get an oil cooler installed. Thanks!

Jackson, there is no reason to swap out your oil cooler; you don't have a problem and it may not get worse for a long time, if ever! But if you really want to do it, Filter, Flush, Filter, Check deltas, Happy or Replace.

If you flush the rad, then the block - both sides using the engine on method you can clear out a lot of crap before flushing with the chemicals.

Filter now, just watch it. Ipr is the best on the market. I dont recommend a chemical flush, if you don't have goo, or rust. If the time comes to replace the oil cooler, tap water, distilled water, elc. Then replace the oil cooler.

Note to adding a coolant filter... Use distilled water instead of regular water from a hose. I'm about to add a coolant filter to mine & it was recommended to use distilled water.
