Need help on understanding the eot

Hey guys I’m new here and new to the diesel. So my 6.0 powerstroke EOT is getting up to 230 normal driving and my ECT is around average 170-190. I talked to the mechanic well thats what he call himself. He said he talked to a few others and they say that the oil cooler is good which I know that is not. Its not normal to have the degrees on those two that far apart. What do you guys think??

8-10 degree Delta is normal. Anything over 15 and you'd suspect the oil cooler, but additional work is required to test head gaskets as well.

I'd recommend taking it to a competent Diesel shop. Doesn't sound like you found one.

The oil cooler is definitely plugged. Do you still have the egr cooler in tact?

The egr cooler doesn’t clog. The oil cooler does, which then cuts off coolant flow to the egr cooler and then can rupture.

Re: Need help on understanding the eot

What year model truck?

Overheating an EGR cooler can cause it to fail - especially if it is an 04.5 to 07 model year.
