I've got an 05 and wondering what coolant to run. I've heard people say keep the gold and others say stay away from it.

Re: coolant


Final Charge is another choice. CAT 1 EC rated. The bottle claims 1,000,000 miles.....

Re: coolant

Gold coolant is a very good coolant but requires routine maintenance. If you don't maintain it properly it may damage the engine. Most prefer to go with an hd extended life coolant like ec-1 spec because it is virtually maintenance free

Fixing ford diesels since before they had turbochargers
