I installed my new scangauge it's great but I'm wondering about my coolant temp and oil temp cause my coolant temp is 182 and oil temp is 200 does this mean I have to change them both and also does this mean my head gaskets are shot too it's a 05 with 86000 mi

If your only seeing 182ECT, you may need to replace the thermostat first and then see what your temps are. At 182deg. your not even getting up to temp and your t-stat isnt even fully open till 200deg I believe. Your HG's are fine if your not puking out the degas bottle or loosing coolant somewhere.

If your gonna stud it then redo the gaskets too, but you don't need to pull the cab for an oil cooler. It's wise to pull the cab for a stud job, and theres no sense in studding it if your not gonna replace the gaskets.
