6.0 coolant flush write-up

With all the threads on coolant flushing, concerns, questions, how do I's I put together a document which I hope helps. In it it contains a description of the cooling system, and an excellent complete flush which can be performed to provide the best possible results. I hope you like it and comments are welcome!
