Restore, Restore+ & VC-9
Ok, I understand there has been a bunch of talk concerning these coolant system cleaners. But I think the discussions are buried so deep in a unrelated thread I just can't seem to find them.
I am hoping that someone can shed some light on this topic and set things straight with the cleaners that are available to us.
From what I understand the Cummins Restore is a cleaner to remove the silicate gel from the coolant system. VC-9, aka Motorcraft Iron Cleaner, is just that an iron cleaner.
Now the million dollar question; is the Cummins Restore+ a combination of both a silicate cleaner and iron cleaner?
Some say yes, but when I look on the bottles of the Restore and Restore+ they both say something different. The Restore states it is a super cleaner that will removed oil, fuel and silicate gel from the coolant system. However, the Restore+ only states is removes iron, rust, corrosion and solder bloom. It does not mention any where it is a cleaner for silicate gel. Is it ok to ASSume that because is shares the same name, RESTORE, that is also cleans silicate gel even though it mentions nothing about it?
