VC-9? and Blackstone?

Were do you find VC-9 for purchase?? I was thinking about having a oil analysis done on the truck I just bought. Is having the old oil analyized worth doing??

Thanks again

Buy vc-9 at dealer, around $25 per quart. You need 2 for a flush. Also, you might want to do a search on "Restore" . I've read that it gets rid of the silicates the Ford coolant drops out. And the silicates plug the oil cooler.

And here is a list of threads you might want to keep around.:

It is the used oil that you want to have analysed. That will let you know if anything abnormal is happening in your engine.

As stated the VC-9 is a coolant flush intended to remove iron and mineral deposits from the cooling system.

Restore is formulated specifically for clearing out silicate sludge.

Restore Plus is the same thing as VC-9.

Got questions about your 6.0?

The "old" oil is still in your truck now? Yes having it analyzed will help you to know the current state of your engine and how the oil is doing.
