Question Where to buy ELC Coolant ???

Next week I am going to flush my cooling system and refill with an ELC coolant and install a coolant filter. Where have you been buying your ELC coolant from ???

Your local auto parts store probably has Zerex or Prestone ELC, if not in stock they can order it.

Cat shop, Cummins Shop, International shop. Gotta be something near you.

I got mine at the international dealer, why not put the filter on and run it about a 1000 miles, and clean out the bad stuff first. Put the new ELC in and change the filter again at 1000 miles and go from there. Just my 2 cents.

Because that won't begin to clear out the silicate residue from the G-05 coolant, but hey, it's your truck.
