Look for flush writeups in the 6.0 Tech Files section. You will need 4 gallons of ELC concentrate and 24 gallons of distilled water. Try to get the Rotella Ultra ELC if you can. It is the newest and best formulation to date.

His is news to me. Is it worth switching from the rotell elc to the rotella ultra elc though? Brand new degass bottle going on when I get back from fishing today. Quicker response the better. Thanks

I would run it. If your running the ford gold coolant. I would get it out ASAP. From what I year you will be inside your motor in no time if you keep running that. But don't forget to flush her out real good first.
