There is always a strong chance of plugging up a new oil cooler when flushing after the install especially useing one of the chemical flushes it breaks down the material actually causeing the problem, it breaks loose and can wind up clogging the new cooler.
As for the color of the coolant that doesn't matter it is the formulation. As long as it is rated for diesels you can use it.
That said I do know of a few people who use regular automotive coolant for years with no apparent ill effects. So I dunno is the industry standards truth or just sales promotion?
