That's only a 8 or 9 degree difference going up hill? No, you shouldn't worry. Usually the oil temp will be going through the roof when it's plugging up. Also the rule of thumb is a 15* spread before you start to worry.

You can do a flush, there is a writup somewhere on hear on how to do it properly, then the best thing you can do is to get a COOLANT FILTER on it, the most important thing to add on these trucks.

The Ford Gold seems to not be one of Fords better choices. If it were mine, and yes I did, a very good flush with distilled water and replace with Cat 1 ELC. If you're lucky you won't have to do the chemical flush yet, it will clog your cooler, and add a filter.
