Question Oil in coolant.Flush before replacing oil cooler

I am new here and am hoping somebody could give me some advice on how to clean the oil out of the coolant system before I replace the oil and egr coolers. Should I just run water through it or do they make something that will clean out the oil?

The tech sections (below in the main forum) have some good write ups on this. Here's one:

I think most are using a product called Restore

Finish/Cascade is what a lot of guys use to clean it up. Simple Green first would surely help with the situation.
There are plenty of people that have had big issues after acid so do your research and Best of Luck with it.

I recently used Cascade to do a minor cleaning before switching to CAT EC1 and have had no ill affects. Will be pulling a 4500 lb quad trailer up into the Sierra mountains today that will be the final say if oil cooler temps are still same as always.

If you have not changed the oil cooler yet, you cannot get it clean until after the oil cooler is replaced. Ford recommends simple green, but wth do they know. Hehe.
