Coolant flush at non dealer places

Any of you guys ever get a coolant flush from somewhere like Jiffy Lube or oil can Henryís? I think they do services like that but wasnít sure if they did a full flush and if they would use quality coolant with proper additives. Anyone have experience on this?

That said, I will use a diesel performance shop over a dealer everyday of the week.

Absolutely not. Iím with Heavy, Iíve got a great local shop that Iíve had better luck out of than a dealer.

I read an article once about a high dollar Jag that someone carried to a Jiffy Lube for an oil change. They took a sawzall to it and did I forget many thousands of dollars worth of damage to it.

Jiffy Lube, not even once.

Those places screw up a simple oil change on a small 4cyl gas car, I wouldn't trust them with a heavy duty diesel coolant flush if someone else paid for it.
