Coolant Change

My 99 (I hate to admit) still has the original coolant in it. It came with the green... How do you go about changing out all of the coolant and what color should I go back with. I want to change out all of the original hoses before the summer camping season, so it's time to do this.

If yours is a early 99 stay with the green. If it is the later 99 I would switch to a true ELC like Fleetrite and know you have the best coolant money can buy. Whatever you do don't fall for the Hype on the Gold coolant that Ford used. It falls far short of the min protection levels.

Not sure which instructions were PM'd you but there are a couple different ways. If you received the one that requires pulling the block plugs send me a PM if interested and I will give you the other way. Less labor intensive but very boring and repititive.

What could possibly be less labor intensive than pulling the block drain plugs? It takes about 15 minutes to pull the plugs and flush the block clean. It's the only way to positively flush the system 100%.
