IMO, if your deltas are good, then just flush with distilled water and refill with new Gold.

If you dont want to clog it, dump it, flush with tap till clear, flush with 24 gal of distilled to get back to ph of 7, then refull with concentrate. About 3.5 gal, I suggest removing the thermostat and at least the drivers side drain plug when you dump it. I refilled mine with elc with the cat ec-1 rating. I had gold before, I havent had any problems in 1k miles.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

He don't at least flush with water, then he will end up with 50% old coolant mixed with 50% of new coolant. What's the point in that!

Coolant filter is great idea, especially if you're staying with gold. Flush system out with distilled, it takes several times and there's great instructions on here for this procedure. Then fill with 3.5 gal of gold or cat ec-1 then fill the rest with distilled water and you're good for awhile.

Coolant filter is a good idea no matter what coolant you are running. I recommend the IPR Full Flow coolant filter. Best on the market. Like Southend said, flush well with tap water then run 24 gallons of distilled water through it, then add concentrated coolant.

Got questions about your 6.0?
