Coolant HELP what is the good stuff

I want to do a radiator flush and was told to change to a differ coolant and not use the ford gold junk because it gels and clogs up the radiatior... Is this true have you heard of this... what kind is the best to use on a 6.0 PSD. I was also woundering if there is a kind you have to use on the 2005 6.0 like on chevy cars the DEXCOOl stuff or can I just get some coolant and change it out please let me know what you like to use. I dont want to jack something up just learning thanks.....

This topic has been discussed no less than 100 times man. I did a search for you and here are the results. Look for posts by 'PGreenSVT' as he has written his doctorate on this subject.

gold coolant is fine. There's guys with well over 200K with stock cooler and stock oil cooler running the gold coolant. The reason why they have had luck without having to replace the stock egr and oil cooler is because they have the coolant system flushed every year or every other. I only have 64K on my truck(just a toy and don't drive it much), but i still have the stock egr and oil cooler. I have been thinking about a flush sometime this year and i will probably put the gold back in it.

Well, on the OP's behalf, the search function on this forum kind of sucks mainly due to people posting every last mod they've done to their vehicle in their signature. There are two ways to alleviate this... have the Super-Duper Moderators remove all mods in people's signatures (I'm a realist and know that this will never happen) or go to 'Advanced Search' and conduct your search in 'Titles only'. That way, it's not searching the body of the threads that contain mods. I love this forum but it's not very user friendly for the proactive individual who like to find answers for themselves.

Or you can use the google search that is on the left top of the page right under the blue Powerstroke.org. It works great and only searches this site.

international recommends to use Rotella ELC (not to be confused with rotella ultra elc) in the VT365 motor which is the sister motor of the 6 leaker.
