6.0 coolant flush

2005 6.0 150,000 miles. I have no gauges and just bought the X 3 weeks ago.

1.Should I do a flush?

2. I have a whole home R/O system(even my hoses). Can I use that instead of buying distilled water?

Anything else let me know!

Before you do anything, get something to monitor your engine. You need to know what you have before you potentially waste your time on a flush. With 150,000 it might not be a bad idea, but better to know your deltas first.

R/O water is just as good at distilled for doing a flush. It might cost a little more than distilled but if you have it on your whole house you might as well use it. You must have a bad well or dont like the taste of municipal water to get an R/O system.

Thanks... I grew up on well water and like it a lot better than city( Work in the city and hate the taste) My well is fine. It's nice to be able to drink out of any sink and have R/O. Plus no water spots when I wash trucks and showers feel better lol. Also I have saltwater reef tanks and much easier to maintain and fill.
