It's Cold/No Heat

Ive done some reading in other posts that suggested it might be head gaskets, most would not get heat until the truck was revd up or while driving. I have the opposite. while at idle the truck warms up and I get better heat into the cab, however while under way it cools down again. This only seems to happen in the winter season. I have recently done an egr delete, gaskets, oil cooler(tech told me it would run cooler with the egr delete).Ive checked the coolant in the de-gas bottle and it is just a bit below the max line(i mean really just a bit) truck just does not warm up when cold outside, thus I get not heat in the cab to warm up. Truck is running fine. Any ideas? Thermostat? Can ths be easily fixed and where exactly is the Tstat at? kink in the heater lines? where are those lines located? Thanks.

I think I have come to that conclusion as well in doing some more research. should I drain all the coolant out and take this opportunity to change it to the elc coolant. I recently had a gaskets and the like and the the coolant was replaced and flushed then and replaced with the ford crap. is there any need to do another complete flush or do you guys think I will be ok with draining and replacing. Its got the egr delete and new oil cooler as of about 12k ago maybe. whats your thoughts?

For the time and effort it takes, I would flush it just to make sure to get all that gold crap out of there. it'll only cost you a couple bottles of vc-9 and some distilled water....then you know its done right

I belive you have a bad thermostat also. If changing coolant I would use ELC just like International does.

It was indeed the TSTAT. Changed it out this morning and she runs at normal operating temp now and I got heat in the Cab !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $25 part, took about 30-min to an hour to change out. Probably some can do it faster, I just take my time and I by no means a mechanic so I'm cautious.
