Simple coolant flush & filter install
I have a 6,000 mile 2006 F-350 my deltas usually run between 2-4º
I want to get the gold out and install my coolant filter.
I have 30 gallons of distilled, 4 gallons of Rotella ELC concentrate, Sinister coolant filter kit, 2 Fumoto Valves, tubing and PH meter.
Is this the correct procedure?
Loosen the radiator pet**** & remove the starter and 2 block valves, install o-ringed Fumoto valves, and tubing.
Remove thermostat / replace housing.
Heater core.....disconnect the 2 hoses and blow it out with air?
Reconnect heater hoses, close block valves and fill degas bottle with distilled, start engine turn heater on high add more distilled to keep the bottle full and let run for (how long?) then repeat same process until everything is coming out clear and has a PH is 7.0
Drain again, install Sinister kit, put thermostat back in. Fill with 3.5 gallons of Rotella ELC concentrate through the thermostat opening. Fill degas bottle with distilled to minimum line. Idle and top off with distilled as necessary. (or do I top off with 50/50 mix now?)
