My results from Gold Crap Coolant Flush

1st off thanks to all that assisted in this transition to CAT Coolant.

Purchased scan gauge II to verify puking 11 - 15 deg differential.

Had Ford Tech Buddy replace oil cooler and flush with Ford VC-9 reported a bunch of black flakes that mashed to the touch.

Got it home removed lower radiator hose and installed Fumoto valves drained and got this....


Flushed once with 1/2 gallon of Restore and got this.....


Flushed again and got this...


Flushed twice with Restore + and got a lot of milky fluid first time, a whole lot less second time and final flush with 4 Gal Dist. water until clear.

Removed the Starter to install Pass. Valve PIA upper bolt requires 1/2" socket and mini 2 1/2" long handle ratchet with 6" extension.

3/8" ID Clear hose from Lowes makes draining engine a no mess process.

I captured almost 1/3 Cup of sand and metallic flakes

Installed Sinister external Coolant Filter so it will be interesting to see what it captures now.

Refilled with 3 Gal CAT Coolant & 2 Gal Dist. Water.

Running 193 and 195

Again, thanks to all and whomever feels they don't need this should just look at the pics.

That's incredible. I'm actually lined up to do mine tomorrow and I hope I don't get this much debris out of mine!

Thank God! I never saw that stuff when I flushed my truck, I've changed my coolant filters every 5000 miles for 15,000 miles now........no crud. I did get a slimy, snotty, substance when I first flushed with Restore, that was it.

06 120K flushed before and after the Ford Oil Cooler install.

Previous 215 H2o 200 ish Oil

Also added REV-X

Now 192 H2o 190 - Oil 195

It also tracks identical up the range from cold.

The best thing to do is remove the lower radiator hose into a rubbermaid tub, no 5 gal. bucket will work.
