The ec-1 rated coolant won't screw up your truck. Just need to do a really good flush to get the ford gold out.

G05 is what the factory Ford gold junk is. Take it back and get EC-1 rated coolant.

thanks guys!!!!!

he literally woudnt let me get it (elc-1) i was like please let me have it. he said no it needs the g-05 so i said ok. i guess he thought he was smarter than a 16 year old (maybe he was)
literally ok.

so its in my truck right now have coolant filteration system is it gonna be ok or do i go to ford to get the conditioner, or do i have to do the flush(put new hoses,radiator,and the front cover)

oh guys traction bars are amazing(onupoffroad)

blow off valve is fun

oil pump and oil pan makes oil stay cool

ran 0-60 in 5.2 seconds full tank and only 2wd

It just needs a good flush with distilled water until it comes out clear and then refilled with an EC-1 coolant. No need to replace anything else.
