Coolant Flush ?s

As my owner's manual was 'removed' form my truck late one evening without my consent, I do not know how much coolant nor what type of coolant to use. I remember the owner's manual calling for Motorcraft Gold Coolant, but I recall seeing somewhere on here people recommending a different type of coolant.

I searched the forums but typing in coolant is like typing in 'the' you're gonna get ALOT of info back.

Thanks for the help guys

I just saw an older thread here and Scott (scuffy) said pulling the freeze plugs is unnecessary?

Well your going to get at least two gallons residual coolant, not to mention the possibility of a bunch of crud too. there are two 8mm allen head plugs in the rear side of the block. they have an o-ring seal. it can be messy. why delute new coolant with old, I'd even flush the heater core
