Just in time(I think)

Me and my wife flushed the cooling system today. Man, the amount of crap that came out was awful. I did not expect to see the amount of sediment and general sludge that 45k worth of driving would produce. It's no wonder oil coolers go bad.

My eot/ect difference before was +/- 7-10. Now it is +/- 3-4. I did the flush twice just to make sure, the second time around, There was very minimal trash that came out compared to the first time. That tells me that FLEETGUARD makes an excellent product and also tells me thank goodness for this forum and everyone's help.

I went by pgreensvt's instructions and that made life very easy for flushing.So thanks for that writeup, made life a whole lot easier.

Just thought I would post this for any future readers that the factory coolant(in my case anyway) starts deteriorating very early.

How some of you guys make as long as you do amazes me!!!

You should look into a coolant filter to pick up anymore floaties lingering around in there. Also to maintain the cleanliness of your newly flushed system, inexpensive peace of mind.

I got the mkm kit ordered. Would be really cool if there was a filter to fit a wix remote setup. Have one left over from a slow old firebird. Thanks for letting me know anyway. After spending what I did on this truck, reading, reading, and reading some more is what I have done and will continue to do. Hopefully now it's safe to give the srl++ a shot. And I do have studs now
