My truck has 111,000 mi. and suffering from the second EGR cooler failure. Is the Bullet
Truck has 111,ooo mi. and plagued with the second EGR cooler failure. Question: Is the Bullet Proof products as good as they advertise?? What path should I take, sell or fix and how much can I expect to spend if I decide to get repairs made?
The first EGR cooler failure was covered under warranty at 55,000 mi. I assume Ford products were used but not replacement of oil cooler. Now 55,000 miles later another failure, and my question is can I find quality products to repair this vehicle or should I sell this truck and not look back.
Keep in mind these Oil Cooler Fail 2 diffrent ways.
1. Plugged Coolant Paths in Oil Cooler
2. A Manufacture assembly issue/Internal Breach what mixes Both Coolant & Oil together
once you clean the cooling system and get a coolant filter the OEM Oil Coolers been fine
I Plugged a OEM oil Cooler 1.5years ago in mine I flushed Very well and Ran a coolant filter for a couple months before I changed the OEM Oil Cooler I have around 15K since and My Delatas are still Good
I also run ELC thats Silicate Free it seams to help the Coolant filters Go Longer There is Some Debate that the OEM Gold Coolant causes the Issues with plugged oil coolers I Cant say it Does or Does Not However my coolant filters do Last longer FWIW
Also Keep in mind By Deleating the EGR Cooler shure you eliminate that part BUT you still must watch the temps for the Oil Cooler
I did go a EGR Deleate on mine But Not for any reasons mentioned here or because of the issues you Have Now
However if you want to spend some money there are other options
Here is the one I kinda like its from IPR its a OEM Oil Cooler relocation kit and Inline filter it willl filter at 100% of the coolant going to the Oil Cooler. Its $$ 1300.00
Here is the BPD option its a total removal of the OEM Oil Cooler and then uses a air to oil cooler up in front of the truck. It removes the Risk of the either of the two ways these oil coolers fail. However its the most money around $$ 2200.00
Need some advise. Have gray milk shake consistency fluid in the coolant tank of my 2004 6.0. I am assuming a oil cooler failure. (Made it to 100,000 miles before it failed). If so how do you clean the cooling system as if you do it with the old cooler installed would it not continue to leak oil into the coolant? If I do it after I repair it, will I not contaminate the new cooler or if I put a after market cooler on it, will I not contaminate the new EGR cooler?
