Coolant system capacity/type question
Hey guys I'm about to do a coolant system flush on my truck this weekend for preventative maintenance and was wondering what the capacity of the coolant system is and what type of coolant I should use.
I googled it and searched on the forums and could not find the answers to my questions. I want to know the capacity so I know how much coolant/distilled water to buy. My truck came with GREEN coolant when I bought it [used] and that's what I put in it when I replaced my cracked coolant reservoir. I have read something about having to use Motorcraft Gold coolant, are there any negatives to running green coolant?
