I also own an 05 6.0. My advice is spend $125 at your dealer to check it out. I did and it saved me $1000 on the module that increases the voltage at startup. They also hook a computer to it and drive it. They can compare exhaust temps to (don't remember the other one), but they catch a plugged erg cooler before it gets really messy. Also, install an inline coolant filter kit. This is a must! A temp gauge kit will help identify problems just like the dealers computer.

Mine has had 3 erg coolers, 2 oil coolers, and head gasket replacement within 80,000 miles. So to own one, you better put back $2,000-$4,000 in the rainy day fund if nothing is covered under warranty. Not to mention the $100 per oil and fuel filter changes that get expensive if you drive it a lot. Mine now only gets driven when hauling something and spends 90% of the time sitting in the garage.

There aren't any exhaust temp sensors on 6.0. What they were looking at is the engine oil temp vs engine coolant temp. Oil more than 30 degrees hotter than the coolant indicates a restricted oil cooler. Low coolant flow through the oil cooler is what restricts coolant flow through the EGR cooler causing it to fail. If you've never done the iron out flush on yours, that would be a good idea. The iron out dissolves the rust and silicates that clog the oil cooler.

Thats a really sharp truck you have there. I always liked the way those Fords looked. I wouldnt mind dropping my 12v Cummins in one of those.
