Hey man.... You just bought the truck.... There's some stuff that needs to be looked at /for.....That makes more sense
I should have my wife drive while I watch it...I can say that the thermostat gets to 188 and stops while the oil continues to climb until it gets to around the 202 mark, and then it slows and is a bit up and down, That doesn't really coincide with what the coolant does, although the coolant will jump from the 188 temp to the 190 temp and back down. I can't say I've seen over the 206, but then again I can't say I haven't either.
Overall would you say I'm overreacting, or is what should my next step be? I do have a shop I'll be contacting later this week that should have some expertise, but I was getting ready to push a diesel shop with less experience to backflush the HPOP because that was one of the recommendations I read when I was looking at deltas. This is why my wife should keep me off the internet
Does it have a stock (or stock style) fan clutch, are the wires uncut (original condition). Does this truck have any sort of aftermarket oil cooling system, like air to oil or remote mount oil cooler? Did the truck (originally) option with an HD or snow plow package?
