Question Question about block flushing

I have a 2005 F350 dually with a 6.0. It has been losing coolant, so I pulled the EGR valve and found it wet with coolant. I've ordered a new EGR cooler with the tubes and a new oil cooler, figured I should do that while that close. I already installed a new turbo and my gut told me to take care of those while I was doing that, but I didn't.

Question is, should I hold off to flush with the Restore and Restore Plus until after I change them out, or do it before. I'm weary of doing it before, as I don't want to cause further damage.

Brian

Flush before using your current oil cooler as a sort of filter to grab all the gunk. Where did you get the new parts from?

Kinda worried you got Dorman parts. The Dorman oil cooler does not cool nearly as effectively as the OEM cooler. The passages aren't as well constructed as OEM. On top of that they also had gasket issues. A member named Doward on here actually cut open an OEM and a Dorman for comparison. You can find his video on YouTube.
