    I've got an 06 6.0 I had an egr delete done last fall and replaced my oil cooler at that time, as well. Drove the truck home and the oil/coolant delta was w/in 8*. 2 weeks later, my truck stalled due to a fueling issue and I had it towed home where it sat for about 7 months while I left it on...

    I purchased my truck about 2 weeks ago and i have a 30 day warranty. I took it back a couple of days of having it because i noticed coolant dripping. It looked like it was coming from the radiator. They replaced the radiator hoses and told me the leak was fixed. I bought a new degas cap to...

    ...by adding gold coolant to my reservoir. Only problem is I've got red Finalcharge in the system.

    Is there an effective way to completely flush my coolant system without removing the engine plugs? They are rusted in there. I just bought the truck and it had green coolant in there. I flushed it out by removing the thermostat and filling that orifice up with hose water like 5-6 times until...

    So, I see a lot of people on here are running CAT coolant. So, I decided that's what I'm going to replace mine with. I went down to my dealer and checked for it and they had the 50/50 and the straight (both ELC). Now, here's the problem: Everyone says run the red but not 50/50 (not that the...
  17. General 6.0L Discussion
    About to do a coolant flush with restore and restore plus. My current deltas are within 15deg and my truck has about 46,000mi on it. My question is how likely is the flush to knock so much crud loose that I actually create a clog? Is there any way to reduce the risk? Or just go for it and hope...
