ELC coolant or Evns NPG+

Hey looking to do a full coolant syatem flush to include a new coolant filter, 203 degree thermostat and housing from dieselsite. Been reading on here about how the coolant used must be an ELC coolant that meets the CAT EC-1 rating. I was on Dieselsite.com and was looking at their Evans NPG+ coolant and how its not just a different coolant it operates on a no pressure system with no water at all. I was just looking for opinions, and maybe a more in detail proper flush and fill procedure for the Evans NPG+.

If you have any questions at all about the use of Evans NPG+ in the 7.3, I strongly suggest you give Bob a call at Dieselsite and talk to him about it. He is a bit of an expert on the matter.

ELC is not the only coolant that you can use. But it is THE BEST, you can use. Forget all about the Evan's waterless stuff. Google it and you will see. Just make sure you do a proper flush.

Yep, OP has a 2002, but in my E99 I have been running Fleet Charge pre-charged conventional. I'm happy with it, even if it is pink.

Hornet i see in you sig your a "proud father of a USAF airman". I happen to be an airman myself. I'm deployed right now which sucks, but its part of the job. Where is your son stationed and what does he do?

4 gallons of ELC and 4 gallons of distilled is what you will need.
