If it has the cat ec-1 rating then it will be fine. I wouldn't put anything in unless it has this rating on the bottle.

Our internationals at work say Factory Filled with Rotella ELC on the degas bottles.

But yeah, any EC-1 coolant after a proper flush of the Ford Gold will be fine.

Cat is caterpillar brand coolant... Any coolant with the "EC-1" rating is all you need to make sure it has.

Yeah I know that but all the coolants with the ec-1 rating that I have seen say meet the requirements of "cat ec-1" so I usually put that when people ask questions about coolant. It just saves the other question that people tend to ask "so any elc coolant will work right?"

Yeah it tends to get a little confusing sometimes. The "elc" seems to be the part that gets confused with "ec-1"
