Ford uses Part #VC-1 "Motorcraft Premium Cooling System Flush" to flush the cooling system when serving it.
Ive never done it myself on my diesel. Hope this helps

Go see "Gooch"

Don't want to hurt feelings here or step on toes but in the interest of helping out a fellow "stroker", I would visit Dieselstop.com and check out "gooch's" how to concerning the coolant flush. Nothing wrong with learning, regardless of where it comes from. Hope it helps, Rainman (Bill R.)
