6.0 Oil Coler

Thanks, I have seen the BPD oil cooler and am glad to hear that it isn't required unless the truck has a delta on the oil/coolant temperature.

I will be buying a truck after this work shift (Jan 12th) and will pass on particulars.

Once you have a kleen system, I think a fliter and ELC Cat 1 is number one in prevention of a clogging oil cooler. I just replaced the coolant filter yesterday after around 15,000 miles. All there was in there was about 1/8, may be 1/4 teaspoon of debris.

May be I am too confident, but I have a tendancy to think it will never plug again, how could it, there is no more debris and no more gold crap.

Countless people have had their oil cooler clog after a chemical flush and installation of a new cooler, even with a coolant filter. I'm one of those lucky people, and I personally know at least three others. Even after a flush, there's still debris, sediment, and deposits in the cooling system. This stuff may be partially clinging to the inside of the radiator, coolant passages, etc and comes loose over time. Sometimes it takes years. Other times it only takes months.

This was the case with my big coolant rad., it was full of Gold flakes and I could not get rid of it, I finaly replaced the rad. with a Bullet Proof one.

OIL Cooler

Can I use a SCII to check out the delta on trucks I am test driving or do I need a hand held infra red type temp sensor?

SCII is the most accurate way.

If I would be buying a used 6.0, I would not buy it without using some kind of gauge. The SCII will tell you a lot of thing. You just plug it in OBD2 harness and do the set up for the 6.0
