Coolant Flush

I flushed my cooling system last Saturday with Restore. I did not take the block plugs out and flushed through a heater hose. Monday I drained a gallon coolant out of the petcock and it had about 1/2 in of foam on top. So I put it back on the lift and pulled the block plugs and flushed it again to get the foam out. I left the T stat in both times. I still have a little foam when draining out of the petcock but nowhere near what I had the first time. No foam at all in degass. Should I check it again in a few days or will it hurt anything? All help will be appreciated

Re: Coolant Flush

Ive never flushed anything, it looks like you should do the in depth coolant flush with 7 gals of distilled water outlined in a sticky up above

Re: Coolant Flush

Come to find out, Rotella elc coolant actually foams just a little bit when mixed with water and air gets in it. I poured some straight out of the bottle and mixed a little water and got a few suds. But I flushed 1 more time anyways
