Out With The Gold, In With The ELC
Well went out and bought four gallons of Zerex ELC and then headed for the dealership. I was going to do it, but for 60 bucks I couldn't pass that up. Anyway, right off the bat I noticed my EGT's running cooler. Typically at 65 I'm at 800, not I'm at 700. At idle my truck would never go all the way down to 300, but now it does. Would I recommend doing the switch, yes...
Here is a pic of the stuff I used.
Here's a video how the mechanic did my flush. He pulled a hose off the bottom of my radiator, then took a bolt out of my block, and also left the filter off my coolant kit. Then he stuck a hose in my degas bottle and started my truck. He let it idle for about 30 minutes while water poured underneath. I'm sure all the gold crap is now out of it...haha. My only concern is instead of having distilled water I now have regular old water in my truck. Any idea if that'll cause a problem?
Hopefully the link works...
