Blew my oil cooler how do I go about cleaning this mess up?

Well my oil cooler gave up the ghost. I have oil all thru my coolant system. I have a complete bullet proof kit sitting at home to put in but here is my question. How do I clean up the coolant side of my system so that I dont have any problems after the new oil cooler is installed. I am going to pull the cab and do all the bulletproofing and I have a new oil cooler. Obviously I cant use restore and restore plus or circulate anything else thru the system for that matter. Anyone have some suggestions. Thanks in advance for any help.

You could try to get a big Rubbermade tub and fill it with SimpleGreen or Superclean then use a sump pump to circulate it. You will need all new hoses too as your old ones may start failing one by one now with the oil exposure. Flush the heater core and any thing else you can seperatly. GOOD LUCK

Ohhhh that sucks, your best off getting new hoses and degas bottle and cap. The caps do tend to become damaged if a bad cup and fuel or oil from failed cooler, gets in the bottle. The only way i have been able to break it up as best as i could manage was a mix of dawn dish soap distilled water and simplegreen. i open the drain plugs in the heads as well as the radiator pet****.
