The process has begun

I have currently flushed the system 3 times and am now running the Restore through it.

Ok, retard moment number one. I got back from driving around with the Restore and went to remove the lower radiator hose. I forgot to release the pressure, so 150* came exploding out.

On the last stage of the coolant flush. Trying to get all the crap out. I'm currently on flush number six after the Restore Plus. Tomorrow comes all the big things.

Just finished. Took 10 flushes after the Restore Plus to get the water clear again. That's not pulling the block plug though. I pulled it for all of them up to the Restore Plus, but for the sake of time I left it in for all the ones after until the water was clear. Then I did two more where I pulled it. The last one was the only one where I used distilled water. The rest I used a garden hose with an inline RV water filter on the end of it.

I will pull the driver side plug for each flush but the passenger side plug is a PITA. I hope it works out like you have planned.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.

I was going to, but it was getting dark so I was trying to hurry. It's much faster when you don't pull the plug. I don't see any reason I'll have any problems. Bottom line I still had clean water coming out of it, just took a few more flushes.

They were 14*-15* with spikes to 17* sometimes.
