Default How to clean oil to prevent anymore contamination from the Doorman oil cooler gasket

Once again, I"m replacing my oil cooler. I purchased my new OEM oil cooler kit due to multiple IPR failures due to the first oil cooler replacement. When I first purchaed my truck 6 years ago, I did the bullet proofing. I did not realize I had the green gasket which is a Doorman who Diesel tech Ron says never to use. 3 years ago we purchased a 5th wheel and since then, I have replaced my IPR screen 4 times. Every-time I had IPR failures, green gasket particles were on the screen. I sold the 5th wheel and got a trailer that was 6Klbs lighter and a new OEM oil cooler. I"m just about done with the tear down for the new OEM oil cooler and I pulled the IPR valve. It has 400 miles on the new IPR screen and oil change. The IPR Valve is covered in little green Doorman gasket material.

Now, How do I clean out the tiny sediment that keeps plugging my IPR Valve? I am so pissed! Anyway, I have a second IPR Valve, but I want to flush what ever is in there OUT! The question is HOW?


Also.....for more power.. I was considering more power and wondering how ... without a stud kit. My truck is stock 2003 XLT with 150K miles on it, I got an Atlas tune from ED @ FICM repair, blue spring kin, AFE cold air intake, coolant filtration system and stock exhaust. I was considering rebuilding the turbo and putting on a billet impeller wheel, but I hear the stock 2003's like mine are great turbos, my turbo is in great shape. So for power increase, I"m considering an impeller upgrade, larger exhaust, or a programmer using the mild tune....


Any suggestions here on this one?




Thank you all for the help!!!

I was finally able to remove the oil cooler. I was appalled at the Effed up quality of the "Doorman" Green gasket. There was **** in the screen to to point where it looked like a kitchen strainer after an rice party for the entire county! There was a crack in the base screen with sediment crammed in the hole creating a plug. Yet there was a long tear that was about 1mm wide..enough for crap to circulate through the entire system. When I did this job, I mainly referenced the service tech via Ford on youtube. NEVER use a green/Doorman gasket, they are ****! When Ipulled the cooler off the intake valley, there were areas where the gasket looked almost dissolved in areas as it was melting away into my oil system. I was able to ID some sediment in the oil filter.

Now, how to clean this Doorman **** show out of my oil system?

Anyone?
