So I am driving 75ish on flat ground with no load. My ECT's are around 180 and my EOT's are 212. My check engine light comes on. Ok I continue to travel for 30 more miles and temp never rised any farther. BTW it was like 95 outside in south louisiana. So am I screwed and need an oil cooler?
Any suggestions. I can't tell the type of rim I have, but I know its aftermarket. The tires that came with the truck were Mickey Thompson Baja 35x12.5x20. I don't want to spend 500 a tire and would like a better road tire that is as good looking as an off-road tire. Been looking around but I...

The weather is pretty nice here in DE and I've been using the rear slider for the last few weeks. It seems like every time I use it it's getting slower and slower to open and close. Then yesterday the window almost didn't close. This is all being done with the truck running. Is there a way...
As I read through the various forums and posts, it almost seems that half of the posts now are regarding coolant, flushing and ELC. Now I'll admit I have my fair share of oil cooler posting :) but I have to wonder, is ELC actually preventing issues? I am starting to see oil cooler postings...
