just thinking

I just read the 50 pg thread on coolant flushing. I'm thinking about hooking my skimmer pump to whole house filter to coolant inspection port, drain to bucket, and recycle through pump. I did restore and + flush a week or so back and deltas went up. I'm hoping this may drop my deltas and may be get some more junk out. I have the things to do this laying around, just thinking.

Your delta went up as a direct result of the type of flush you did. Restore and Restore Plus will dislodge all of the crud in the cooling system and lodge a good amount of it into your oil cooler. Your oil cooler is now clogged up with crud and cannot cool the oil as it once did. The only way your delta will drop now is if you replace your oil cooler. You may want to try a backflush to get out some crud, but once it's in there, you won't get it out. Good luck.

Right now I don't want to tackle the cooler in 16* temps, I did that kind of thing as a kid. Hoping to put off change out til spring. Other than that it goes to shop at 85 per hour.
