That's a good coolant, but I'd recommend doing a complete cooling system flush before adding it. And don't mix the gold coolant with the ELC.

That's fine to use, but as said do a cooling system flush with both VC-9 and Restore before switching to clean the cooling system out good.

NO ... Restore is a semi-clear / semi-thick liquid in a gallon bottle ... made my Fleetguard. Usually sold through Cummins Dealers. Expect to pay around $ 30.00 for 1 gallon. This is the stuff that eats the junk left over from the Gold Coolant.
