EOT stays around 235-244

So I finally got my scangauge all programmed up and went for a 2 hour drive. Turns out my ECT and EOT are constantly at around 40-50 degree different (189ECT and 240EOT) I have no check engine lights, or wrench light that pops up. No coolant puking out of degas bottle. I contacted the Ford dealership and they said if I bring it in all they are gonna do is check it for codes and if noting is found they will just send it back out. What is the best way about getting my oil cooler replaced by Ford before this leads to more problems like head gaskets and EGR cooler. I am still under an extended warranty that I have purchased and the truck only has 48,000 miles on it. Any info or input would help. Thanks

That's what i said, I cannot believe the difference in temp. Yet I thought that my year truck had the CEL come on when there was a difference of over 15 degrees, and I really have no symptoms of the issue, no loss of power, no overheating or anything.

I have three vehicles and really am not out of a vehicle if the powerstroke breaks. So what I'm gonna do is let it screw the motor up and they will have to replace everything since it is under warranty. Then once I get it back with new parts I will just install the BPD oil system and EGR cooler. I was just trying to help the dealership save some money in the repairs that they will have to honor. Im almost regreting going with the 6.0 I love the truch but cant wait till it is fixxed.

The BPD is an excellent idea. Don't wait to hose your truck, go ahead and do the BPD stuff now and save your truck. If you continue to run it your oil will get hot enough to melt the standpipe in the filter can and send molten plastic through the engine You don't really want to do that.

The CEL for the ECT and EOT delta of 15* was part of the VXCF9 strategy update not a model year issue. With a delta of 50-60* like you are seeing the dealership should be all over that. It is way out of spec. Report them to Ford.

How can you tell if you truck is flashed with the VXCF9 update? I have a feeling the truck is gonna go soon, my ECT has been a very steady 188-190 and my EOT is always between 236-240. Also I'm seeing pulsing of the motor during acceleration. You can even see the pulsing in the RPM gauge. I have contacted The local Ford dealership with the results that I posted earlier. I bought the truck from CARMAX and have an appt to take it to them next Wed for diagnosis. Now I told them of the issues but I'm wondering if they are going to get fixxed. Guess I will have to wait and see. I love the BPD kit but if I'm under warranty Ford should have to fix the issues. Plus I got a quote for install of BPD oil cooler upgrade and EGR cooler and the shops around here want $5100 for the install. That is just outrageous! The kit alone is only $2200. Im sure I could install it also. Looks like a an unbolt and replace kind of ordeal. Thank you for all of the help and hints. this site has been very helpful with information and such, I just wished I would have had my scangauge to see the true colors of the motor before I bought it. But looks like I get to ride out this storm early on in my new trucks beginning.

Oh and if I did want to bring this up to Ford how would I go about doing that? That is a good idea if it would make them fix things.
