OIL IN MY COOLANT

I pulled my oil cooler out on sunday and re sealed it and it fixed the problem. Not loosing any more oil. Thank God to because that was a pain. I did it at work and it ended up being a pretty late night, so when I was done I just threw some coolant back in it and went home. But now I still have a pretty good amount of oil in my coolant. What would be a good way to flush it out?

i flushed mine a bunch of times and used a little powerdered dishwasher soap. I picked up the soap tip from an old mechanic. It seemed to help get the oil out better than using just water.

When we do it on big rigs we use cascade powdered dish soap. Usually we flush it 3-4 times before we get the fuel or oil out of the cooling system. We drain it, fill it with water and soap, run it for a 20-30 min, drain again. Look at whats coming out and then decide if should be soaped again. The last time we put just water in to help get all the soap out. Then fill it with coolantl.

Thanks for the input. My boss also said to try cascade soap and a small amount of mineral spirits to help break down the oil. . So I guess Ill give it a try. Looks like Ill be at work again this Sunday. Makes life allot eaiser working in a pit.
