Coolant flush today crying a little but only on the inside,, ha,,ha,,

Finally did my flush today. I am all red now but took my 8-10 deg delta to 16-18,,, I did not do a chemical flush in the hopes of not making it worse, but had the good ole green in there and finally had a day that I could. It was up over a hundred today and there are now flat roads within 60 miles, so I'm going to see what it looks like on the way to work in the morning before temps get above 80 deg. Coolant filter has been on for 1200 ml's it was so bad I couldn't believe it. should have changed it sooner but I kept thinking this weekend for a couple of months now.

I sharing because I need to say (type) it out loud. Every time I think I'm ready to get my SCT something else has to be fix,,,

Don't get me wrong I love this truck one day I'll have all (most) of the bugs worked out.

Do the reverse flush. The same thing happened to me. Did the first flush and switched to ELC and the delta went to 14-16. Did the reverse flush and back to 7-9. Will be doing the reverse flush again this month before pulling my camper to Florida. Best of luck!

I would not get too excited yet. I normaly have a delta of 7 to 14 degrees running empty at 80 to 90 degrees. When the outside temps reach 100 plus, all bets are off. Mine will jump 18 degrees difference running empty. It always comes back down.

I think you are correct. this morning it was 71 degrees driving into work and I never saw more than a delta of 11 so I'll watch and see
