The coolant passages in the oil cooler are SUPER SMALL so casting sand and gel from the ford gold gets loosened up and starts to clog. Only hope is three things:
pray a back flush works
replace oil cooler
get bulletproof diesel air cooled oil cooler conversion kit and never worry but its almost $2300 plus labor. vs a $300 oil cooler from ford.
It happened to me when I got my first 6.0l got super high deltas and didn't know of back flushing. so I drained and filled like 4 times and replaced the oil cooler and was back in business. Just wait till you get to your destination trust me.
