green coolant i kno i kno...

So after I got my headstuds and oil cooler and egr delete done I noticed my coolant was green. Guy that did it said it was shell coolant and aproveed for diesels? Says he ran it for years in all his 6.0s he done studs on. Never had a problem ever. Whether not is elc i dont know. My question is can i run that coolant until it gets a little warmer out?? Right. now its too cold to flush coolant let alone pump diesel fuel. Thanks guys!

The problem with the old green coolants is that they seriously lack sufficient cavitation protection and corrosion inhibitors for high heat applications.

I understand that and I want to flush it ASAP but can I wait like a month or 2?

Iv wondered about this too. My 03 had green in it when I bought it so just left it in there. But I was thinking it would be fine because the EGR cooler was deleted and the coolant wouldn't be getting that flash of 700 degrees anymore.
