Hey Cheez,

I guess it only counts if you post it. LOL

To the Op you said you have never changed the oil filter, I hope that means someone else has, if not 32k is WAY too long on an oil change.

OIL CHANGE

Thanks Sarge;

Yes, I guess the babying part may not have included several oil changes. So, yes, I have had the oil changed every 3000 miles. I used non synthetic for the first 10,000 miles then transitioned to synthetic mobile one. I use to do all the work on my vehicles in my younger years and still do some minor stuff; however, I have not changed oil in a long while. I just completed my certification for my Section 609 MVAC Technician Certification. My vehicles include: 1963 Corvair; 1963 Chrysler 300; 1976 Lincoln MK IV; 1954 Plymouth Savoy; 1993 Taurus SHO; 2003 Cadillac Deville; 2002 Chevrolet Suburban; and, of course, the 2005 Ford F-350!

Regards,

Patrick

RADIATOR PROBLEM

Guys:

Thank you so much for all of your help:

lostru > I will flush the system.
gearloose1 > Pulling codes sounds good.
Headviking > nice avatar! I have checked the radiator fins etc and they are clear of bugs!
Sarge > Nice F350! Thanks for the oil check tips.
Bismic > Lots of great info! I like your link with all the additional info...I will be able to use this again! Excellent job on organizing the information!
69cj > I will buy the Scan Gauge II so that I can review the codes>
crwf250 > I would agree that 30 minutes is not to long to idle the 6.0L.
cheezit > I haven't checked the oil filter yet, but I will!!

You have all provided excellent inputs for my issue. I really didn't expect such great expert advice. I am truly impressed with this forum. Each of you is a real TRUCK fanatic, which is cooooool!!!

Thanks, Patrick

I would suggest removing the oil filter and checking the satnd pipe first. If its gone the rest is mute.

I know this is an older post but I'm I'm having the same issue getting ready to swap out the oil cooler I replaced the pump degas bottle cap flushed it I even pressure test the cooling system no leaks and it held for more than 15 minutes I used a air bleeder tool to vacuum all air out it even collapses the hoses and replaces with coolent there's no milk in the oil and the coolent seems oil free I did read some one had the same issue and it turned out to be his lower radiator hose collapsing at higher RPM which makes sense as they get old I had the same issue with my gas classic Malibu car as well as a buddy of mine last summer hitting the highway I believe it's worth a shot comes with maintenance

It's much better to start your own thread. You're not going anywhere with classic Malibu techniques on this motor as many of the concerns, even overheating, need to be checked with interrelation data from the OBD2 port. So you need a way of reading that data.

There are inexpensive apps that work with smart devices along with an OBD2 adaptor so you can acquire that data and experienced members can help. An oil cooler is an expensive swing in the dark without data.
