Green coolant lacks in nitrates, which can cause cavitation. The 7.3 have a big issue with this.

When I did a local cummins parts dealer, the phone number sent me to the main warehouse in Harrisburg, and they delivered it to the Reading store. IIRC, it was around $35 for the concentrate, but don't quote me on that. I also bought the Restore cleaner to get the silicates out of the cooling system. They might deliver to your door, IDK.

Here's the dealer in Reading, it's across from the Reading baseball stadium, almost next to Al's Diamond gentleman's club. He He!

I like the Q and A. My only sugestion is to add all possible options. For example, blue some - could very well be a trait of too much fuel durring warm up due to a custom tune.

BTW - this one hurt to read. lol

The nipple melted off of my de-gass tank.
