Doing my first coolant flush tomorrow..
I got everything I need.
New T-Stat, 4G Zerex ELC ec-1, 25g distilled water, 1G restore, new coolant line filter and 1gt of VC-9. I couldnt find any restore+ around here so I oredered some VC-9 from the dealer. I didnt notice that the VC-9 came in a 1gt,I know I should use 2 but I dont have time to order more now since Im starting in the morning. I think I will be ok with just using 1 even tho 2 would be better.
I will be removing the T-stat during the flush to try and save some time. Also my scangaugeII was suppose to be here yesterday but isnt going to be here till tomorrow. I was hoping to get a before and after temps but that dont look like its going to happen. I will be able to monitor temps for doing the flush tho. I just got this trk about 2 weeks ago and Im just trying to prevent any problems. It dont seem like its running hot but you cant trust these dash gauges.
Im really hoping for some nice low temps after all the flush so i dont have to change out the oil cooler and egr cooler. I already talked to a local shop about having them change all that out incase I dont feel like doing it. They said doing just the oil cooler and new intake gaskets it would be about $1300, If they changed out the egr cooler and oil cooler and flush out the intake it will be about 2k. That includes parts and labor.. But to be honest it dont look like that hard of a job,Just time consuming.
Anyways thats whats up for me tomorrow...Wish me luck with matching temps...
