Shop for Coolant Flush and Change to ELC

Anyone know of a good shop here in Minneapolis area that can help with a coolant flush and changeover to CAT coolant?

Not yet. No one does anything using restore or specific to cat rated coolants. They'll put in whatever you want, but its mostly a "drain and fill" than anything.

We've done more than a few but it's time consuming. Do you have a place to do it?

It would be at least 300 + materials at our shop. I'd have to look up costs and see if the boss would discount anything.

We're in zumbrota about hour south of you on 52. I'd recommend doing it yourself it's pretty easy.

Yeah - could be the best route. I'm not too worried at this point given my ECT and EOT delta is < 15, but summer is right around the corner and will need to do it before temps get too hot.

Where do you guys get your Restore & Restore+ ?

We have a couple suppliers that can get it or we order off the internet if there's a good deal. We don't stock it. Last 60 flush we did was per Ford spec with simple green. Customer request. Did a7.3 same way after bad injector cups filled radiator with fuel.
