Another coolant flush question.
I have 78,000 miles on my 2010 and It's been "mine" for about 2 months. My ScanGauge shows a delta of 2*. The PO did an outstanding job of maintenance, I have all the records. The Ford Gold coolant is still in use and appears to be the original coolant. I have not tested the nitrate level. I'm considering whether to just drain and refill with the Gold and add a filter and continue to replace the Gold every 3yrs. or so, or change to Cat ELC-1 and add a filter. If I change to CAT ELC-1 it will be necessary to flush with VC9. I certainly don't want to cause any problems with the oil cooler. I plan to keep the truck for a long time. I drive it a couple of times a week and tow an 8000 lb. 5th wheel several times a year. Can I have some advice on these two courses? Thanks very much.
