Hey, for you guys who have done an ELC flush (I got my 3 gallons of Concentrate and 3 gallons of premix... I'll return what I don't use), what kind of plugs should go back IN to the engine after draining the old coolant and flushing with water? In the lovely -20 Utah weather I haven't bothered to crawl under the truck yet. I'd rather just order some up so I have them when the weather warms.
