Egr delete question

I going to be deleting my egr with sinister delete kit with elbow. I was wondering do I need to flush my radiator or can I just add coolant?

Everything I've read doesn't mention either I have to flush or I can just add coolant like 50/50

I haven't done mine yet but I would just kept track of any lost coolant during install and replace after completed. Do not use 50/50! Make sure it's the ford gold or comparable brand.

Oh ok well I don't have time to get the Ford gold so I'll have to find a comparable brand

i would not mix another brand with the ford gold. If your truck has ford gold and you aren't completely flushing, you are making a mess of your cooling system.

get the ford gold if you aren't flushing, otherwise, do a complete flush and get some CAT ELC coolant.

You'll lose about 5 gallons, IIRC. You could get away with just adding water for the time being (if ya dont live in the cold) until you get the time to either dump and add ford gold or flush....whatever your plans are.

Well I live in pa and yesterday was a high of 11*f so I guess I'll have to get to a ford dealer and get some. So I just need like 3 gallons then finish the rest with distilled water?

I used the zerex G-05 is it the same as ford gold?

Edit: After a little research looks like ford gold and the zerex are the same other than the ford gold is full strength and the zerex is cut 50/50 ready to pour.

To the OP, I did re-use some of the coolant that came out. It did have sand in it, most of it settled to the bottom of the bucket but just to be safe I filtered what I put back in.

as said i wouldnt mix. also i would put back what was caught and top off with distilled water.

do a proper flush when youre ready and fill with cat ec1 rated coolant and add a filter. deleting egrs will make tstat access extremely easy when youre doing a flush.
