Hi, new to forum, new to the 6.0, have ???'s
Hi new to the forum, just recently bought a 06 FX4 Lariat Crew Cab with 61,ooo miles. I'm trying to figure out how heathly the engine is. I've been reading on the forums a far bit the last couple of weeks, and I read something about the coolant level in the tank should only be at the min. mark is that correct? Mine was fuller than the max. mark an some seemed to puke out, now it is halfway between the marks and seems to have stopped. It is the ford coolantand looks to be clean, but I don't know if it has been changed or flushed out.
If I did the flush with the restore will that clean out the oil cooler ports if they are starting to plug and by adding the coolant filter will that help with eventually flushing the cooler out?
I understand that I will need to get a Edge Insight, but I am not sure where you can get them, do auto parts stores carry them or is it only available on-line?
I bought the truck in Florida and brought it to Ontario, ran the VIN # at the local Ford dealer and no engine warranty work was done , but it had a trans. job done at 35,000 miles. Good or bad I own it now!
I would like to know if alot of the products that is talked about on the forum is readily available in Canada or under different trade names?
Sorry for all the questions, just don't know where to start, TIA.
