Wow, how much does he charge an hour? That sounds like a drain and fill job.

You better make sure that cat coolant is Fully Formulated and not 50/50 premix or ready to use coolant.

Might wanna throw in a gallon of Fleetgaurd Restore while your at it since your doing a chemical flush with VC-9. Also if you do decide to do the restore flush do it first then the vc-9 second.

Also, do you have a coolant filter installed yet?


And just be ready to be replacing your oil cooler pretty soon... It's common that after you flush the system that it clogs up your oil cooler that is installed!

Just take it back and goto napa and pick up a case of zerex ec-1 rated elc coolant fully formulated part number is ZXED-1 at napa you can usually pick it up for around $15/gal. Don't put premix in your cooling system after you flush regardless of how much of it you buy you won't get the ratio right because the cooling system retains about 3.5 - 4 gallons of water after you drain everything. You need concentrate for a flush and refill then you can use 50/50 premix to top off a low system.
