    I have a 2002 f350 7.3 and i'm looking to do a coolant flush. A few people said use peak fleet charge or peak final charge. does anyone have any input on which is better or something else to use. p.s. I live near Minneapolis so it gets really cold and i don't want any problems this winter.

    1997 7.3 OBS First time post and diesel novice. I recently had a no start issue. I took care of the problem and was doing some more work while I was at it. One thing I handled was a block heater replacement. Since the coolant was drained I replaced the thermostat. I figured it would be...

    I just bought some cat elc and didnt realize it until i got home but, they gave me just regular CAT ELC and CAT ELC ( with embitterment ) both are concentrated and both have the ec-1 rating. Just curious if they will work together. Im guessing the embitterment is for all the dogs in the...
