OIl TEMP ON THE RISE

I have a 08 F350 SD with 110,000 miles. I change the motor oil between 3000 & 3500 miles. I'm running KEM tunes with a K&S tuner. Driving yesterday I noticed the oil temp slightly unstable and ranging from 203 - 213 deg. For the past several years this truck never went over 203 deg. Is this a sign the oil cooler is going bad? and if so what's involved in replacing the cooler. Thanks in advance.

At the same time...what is your water temps? Perhaps it is the thermostats.

I don't monitor my water temp in the h&s, but the guage sits just under 12:00 - it's the best I can come up with

Are you running a coolant filer?

When was you last flush?

Oil cooler could be clogging or just has some nasties you need to flush out.

197 207
192 201
195 201
192 207

your delta seems ok.

I suggest a coolant flush. When was the last one completed? Have the nitrites ever been tested?

no, I'm not running any coolant cooler - can you flush the oil filter? I'm real religious on changing the oil and use Kendall 20w50 and have on all my trucks from my 87, 93, 02, 06, 08 Fords & 1-Dodge (thought I would try one out) and 3 medium duty International Trucks DT466

I've never have done a flush on the coolant system and have not run any tests either.
how does the coolant flush effect the oil temp. I understand you keep the engine cool will keep all fluids cool but I thought there is a oil cooler? am I incorrect in my thinking?

There is an oil cooler in the valley of the motor. Coolant runs through it.

Checking the chemical make up of the coolant helps with corrosion protection as well. Since you have just over 100K it is over due.

You ran 20w50 in your 06? Was it a 6.0?

so I'll check the properties of the coolant - is there possible damage already to the oil cooler - or will the flush clean it up?

I am thinking just do the flush. Your delta's are still fine.

I don't think any long term damage at this time.
