Interesting.. gonna need someone to break that down for me. Everyone I've ever talked to has always indicated that what I'm using is fine.There is more to it than that. Ford Gold meets D3306

The shop that did the work is highly respected. The owner assured me that he has never had an issue with that coolant.

I'll say it again.. been told multiple times (including on this forum) that it's basically the same so just trying to understand the difference so I can make an educated decision before I spend hundreds of dollars having the system flushed.No one is really going to spend the time it takes to break it down for you. The green universal ELC flat out doesn't work. It causes damage from cavitiation, can't handle the heat flashes from the EGR long term, and more. Use it if you will but its been long established that not all coolants are the same no matter what the "bottle says" or what "your old mechanic buddy says" This is especially true for the 6.0l diesels which egr cooler heat-flashes the coolant when oil coolers are clogging. You can stick with it if you like and if its worked for you and the shop its beyond a rarity. There are always other brands coming out but few past the 6.0l test so experience, real world and many a broken down 6.0ls can attest to simply sticking with the red/sticky/sweet ELC coolant.
Wow.... YOU came into this forum and You asked for advice.... (obviously, it got answered in entirety), but this is a bit of a rude statement.If you're not willing not even take a stab at explaining this then It makes me question the validity of the claim.
No.. I didn't come into this forum asking for advice. Everyone needs to go back up to the top of the thread and re-read it.Wow.... YOU came into this forum and You asked for advice.... (obviously, it got answered in entirety), but this is a bit of a rude statement.
You can use whatever coolant you want, or your mechanic recommends, nobody should have to defend an answer that is widely covered on these forums.
This is no different than "why shouldn't I buy [insert brand here], you haven't proven anything, just posted an opinion" argument..... I don't have to prove anything, do what you want, but don't ask for advice if you just want to deny /argue about the answers.
I'm just pointing out the "rudeness" in your statement..... Even if you weren't trying to be rude, it was rude.
