oil cooler

  1. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    I have seen a couple threads about this on other boards, but no solutions...I have a 2007 6.0, studs, BPD EGG and air-oil cooler. About 400 miles after the bulletproof work, it developed a whine...much like a PS pump (a BIG PS pump) low on oil. Noise is there at idle and through RPMs until...

    Sooo, this is going to be VERY LONG but I’d appreciate some input from you other more experienced Powerstroke guys. First let’s set the basic info straight. I really just need you guys to fact check/correct me as needed as I feel I have an okay grasp and understanding of what’s happening. I...
  3. 6.4 Motor Problems
    Hey all, I’m new here and am trying to get opinions on what to do with my truck. I think I know the obvious but I don’t really want to accept it and am looking for someone who’s gone through this already. I have an 08’ F250 with 230,000 miles. It’s been fantastic so far. I bought it with 180,000...

    I am new to the diesel world as I have recently purchased a 2006 F-250. After doing some research, I know that the difference in temperatures(delta) between the oil and coolant SHOULD be less than 15 deg F. I have seen as high of a 31 deg F difference cruising at highway speeds. My question is...

    Hello, My name is Walter, I recently bought a 2006 Ford F-250 Diesel with a 6.0 engine. First, I brought the truck in to a shop for an oil change and to have the check engine light diagnosed. In the process of diagnosing, the truck stopped running. It would not start because there was not...

Anyways I finally got my tuner back from my friend and here are some temps .... My truck is running at 14 degrees and more for EoT vs...

    I got my truck checked and they believe its the oil cooler. Now should I buy an original Ford Oil cooler or a sinister branded one? and what else should I do since I'm doing the oil cooler? Thank you in advance

    I've got an 06 6.0 I had an egr delete done last fall and replaced my oil cooler at that time, as well. Drove the truck home and the oil/coolant delta was w/in 8*. 2 weeks later, my truck stalled due to a fueling issue and I had it towed home where it sat for about 7 months while I left it on...

    2004 f350 6.0 PSD late build, I was driving down the road pulling 14k trailer when engine decreased power and speed to the point it died and left me stranded. After couple hours it was a hard start and died after 20 seconds. Since then it has been a no start at all. It has plenty of fuel going...

  12. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hey everyone I know before I changed out my oil cooler on my 2005 6.0 (egr deleted) with 170,000 miles, It was a little hard to find numbers regarding what temperatures a clean oil cooler will get you. I knew I had a problem when my truck was reaching 40* difference between the coolant and oil...
  13. General 6.0L Discussion
    I know this has been gone over many times and some may say it is easier to just buy a BPD kit but I would rather piece it together myself and have it exactly how I want it. So furthermore, has anyone made a diy remote oil cooler? I am still gathering all the information I need to make this...
  14. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hello All, I have been monitoring my EOT and ECT because a month or so ago I was hauling some horses and I noticed my temps diverged by about 50°F. I don't remember the exact temps, but ECT was about 180 and EOT about 230. Usually they are around 205 ECT and 210-215EOT. This was a return trip...

    Hello, I have a 2002 7.3 truck. 3 weeks ago i hauled my horse somewhere. Went to move my truck an hour later and it would not start. Everything lit up like it would start, but it did not. Came back to it in 20 minutes and it started right up. I drove it home. The next day, while driving, the...
  16. 6.0 Motor problems
    How much coolant does the oil cooler circuit contain? In other words...If I drain the radiator only, and backflush the oil cooler through the lower radiator hose, how much of the flush solution will remain in the circuit? I've already done a complete flush, flushed with restore, added Fumoto's...

    Hey guys, I have been on here before but it wouldn't let me reset my password so I had to create a whole new name. For some background on the truck: 2007 F250 crew cab 4x4 with the 6.0 with about 102,500 on the clock. Two months and 2,500 miles ago I did: Upgraded Oil cooler Upgraded EGR...

    HI guys. So i'm looking for a little advice. Background is this. I've replaced fuel injectors in my 05' 6.0 along with some glow plugs and wire harness. Feel OK about my mechanical skills. Ford just told me I am leaking from the EGR and it needs replacement. Of course the oil cooler will...
