Any coolant rated cat elc-1 should be fine to use in the 6.0L & 6.4L powerstroke engine.

Cat EC-1 (not ELC-1... though it will be ELC).

If you do this, you'll need to flush the entire system though. The Ford Gold coolant and CAT EC-1 ELC are not compatible.

Just an honest typo. An extra L don't hurt a thing!

Napa should have the gold in stock. Save u time and the flush. Plus cost of distilled water.
