oil cooler

So I went to the dealership this morning to discuss my second separated tire in less than two months.....This is besides the point, we got to talking about the oil cooler and what temps we should see. At highway speed I normally see about a 12-14 degree split between coolant and oil, oil temp being the higher of the two. This is not pulling anything and doing anywhere from 70-85 mph. Typical temps: coolant-199-201 oil-210-214

I asked the service manager, who has been great the past two times ive been to this dealership, what Ford says is the normal temp split between oil and coolant and when is it time to bring it in for warranty. He said that anything over 4 degrees is a sign of concern and should be addressed. I told him I was above 10 degrees and he said "Yep you need a new oil cooler". This guy seems very knowledgeable and is cool about my delete on my truck. I knew I was heading down the road of needing my oil cooler replaced, but I was under the impression it was anywhere from 15-20 degrees difference in oil and coolant, not 4 degrees.

On a side note, we got to discussing headstuds and he said that the dealership always provides the option of ARP studs or OEM when doing a head gasket job. He said the truck is torn apart, might as well give the option of putting something better on. The customer has to pay the additional amount for the ARP though.

I have had a 4-6 degree split ever since I have been able to monitor the temps. Towing I see from 4-9 or so. I have always read that 15-20 is when things are really starting to plug up so with your consistent 10 I would probably at least start thinking about getting it changed.

Well its still under warranty, so it will be done sooner rather than later....I would have left it with them today, but I might need it tomorrow or Sunday(Its only driven on the weekends)

I was more interested in getting the tire situation worked out.

I see you have continentals? I seem to remember a recall on 18" continental tires found on newer superduties

I only did one recall about a year ago on a 6.4 equipped truck (can't remember the year) and the customer got 5 new tires.
