Few coolant questions

Going in to have my oil cooler/egr delete done and switching to ELC. Does anyone know if ford will do a proper flush with distilled water? If not, would my coolant filter (going to be installed as well) take care of anything left behind? thanks

They should refill it with distilled water. Just drop off a gallon of Fleetguard Restore and a gallon of Restore + or use 2 quarts of VC-9 in place of the restore + and tell them to use those chemicals first than distilled water then top off with coolant after it's done.

ford will not do a fush the right way and they will fill it up with a hose. ive seen it done 100's of times

Is your egr and oil cooler clogged? IF NOT, i dont see the need for the restore.. It seems that when somebody uses restore it caused alot of problems with more clogging oil coolers etc etc.... If your existing coolant is good and no damages anywhere, flush the system with just distilled water and drive it around for 10- 15 miles.. Then switch to elc. This has worked wonderfully providing everything is in working order before switching over the coolant.

And of course add the coolant filter in*... I have not switched to elc yet and probably wont due to me changing the ford coolant once a year.. Ive never had a problem, and my system is clean as a whistle(coolant filters are spotless)... NOW I have replaced the oil cooler before just as a maintenance thing i guess if you want to call it that when i did the egr delete kit
