Looks like I posted in the wrong section, hopefully a mod will move this.

So after installing the scangauge my oil and egr coolers look to be in not too bad of shape. At 65 mph I run oil temp at 196 and water temp at 188. At 75 mph the oil rises to 199. Now for the bad news, after talking with the previous owner, he doesnt believe the coolant has ever been flushed or changed in the truck(8.5 years and 56000 miles).

So the next question. What should I do regarding the coolant? Change it, flush with or without chemicals, reverse flush, what do you guys think?
