Question 6.0 coolant and the oil cooler

since this seems to be a hot topic right now im looking a flushing mine a moving to a good elc. thing is i have no way to despose of the coolant if i do it myself. been looking around for a place but no luck yet. is this worth doing to my truck at 90,000 miles or should i wait till i get in the motor when i need to. i have had very little trouble with the motor ipr and stc where replace last winter. if the dealer does it what should i tell them i want done and how to do it. thinking that might be my only option with me working on the road. thanks for your input.

HUH? They have the right to refuse service to anyone...

I'm sure Vatozone or Checker will take your old coolant

I flushed my 2006 6.0 at around 26,000 miles and filled her up with the Ford Gold crap (I didn't know any better at that point in time). Now I would definately go with an ELC.
