Well since I got the truck with 109,750K on it I am not sure the coolant has ever been flushed since there seems to be some black film in the neck of the coolant reservoir.
Therefore I went to the Ford house and got a new radiator cap and then stopped by auto zone and bought 5 gallons of Prestone, Prestone flush, and Redline Water Wetter additive. I also picked up the Haynes for 1999-2010 Ford Super Duty for reference.
Here is my question, does everyone think it will be ok to use the Prestone and Redline or should I use the Motorcraft FW-15 additive? Anyone use anything else?
Probably gonna order the 203 thermostat and billet thermostat housing from DieselSite tomorrow.
Anyone have any thoughts?
