@G8orFord , Thank you for the info. What is sad, is that I am still so new, I don't have enough posts to see links etc....

kidding, all will change soon enough.

When it comes to mechanics, everything I know is from either breaking it or watching someone else do the same. Then I had to fix it....Is that bad?

I had a real ****ty mechanic who installed used parts, put a dorman oil cooler on and left metal needle bearings in my motor. Prior to this guy messing with my motor I had oil and coolant temps 5-10 degrees delta. He put ford gold and fords oil in my motor with out my appoval.

It's hard to trust anyone to do right by your truck, at least for me it is. Gotta put potential mechanics through a gauntlet before they can start taking apart your baby. I work a busy schedule but i was determined to do a full coolant flush, while not "difficult" it's very time consuming. I was looking for a mechanic that worked on diesels, talked to a few of them and some were immediate "Nopes". I told them i would be willing to supply distilled water to ensure it's done right, one guy said water from the tap was better for the truck, something along the lines of "if it's good enough to drink; it's good enough for your truck"...Dafuq? another one said he only uses the "best stuff" in regards to coolant and that he won't use the ford gold garbage, i was hopeful... until he told me it was gonna cost about 25 buck for all the coolant! more tap water i guess...

Ended up doing it myself, may have gone overboard as i changed the T-stat out, installed Fumoto valves cause of that damned starter (installed a 6.4 while i was there) bought 35 gallons of distilled water ($0.76 a pop) and spent the Saturday flushing old BARF out. while it took forever and i could taste coolant for the next 2 days, I'm glad i did it, because no way was anyone gonna put that much effort into such a mundane task. i think my deltas may have gone up since then, but that's for another time!

I'd have been quite angry over that. When I pay someone to work on my vehicles, they need to clear with me, what goes into it.

Didn't see any specs on it. I wouldn't use it unless it's clearly marked Cat EC-1
Rotella ELC is only about $17 a gal for concentrate at TSC or Advance

This is formulated for all cars foreign and domestic and light duty trucks. Prestone says this. Since ours are PowerStrokes, I Would stay away. I think we're a little bigger than light duty.
