Coolant Flush Chemicals

I am looking to get more information about all the chemicals needed for a coolant flush. I have heard about Restore, Restore +, and VC-9.

Ok what is the purpose of each? In which order do you use the chemicals? Where can you aquire the chemicals?

Use restore first then restore+ second. the VC-9 is ford's version of the restore+.

Re: Coolant Flush Chemicals

Not sure on the first 2 but VC-9 is designed to remove rust from iron. Its extremely corrosive

Re: Coolant Flush Chemicals

ok well what is better vc-9 or the restore's? I bought the VC-9 for $26 thought that was a little high. Should i return it and go with restore and restore + or keep the vc-9 and get another quart?

Re: Coolant Flush Chemicals

VC-9 is the exact same thing as restore+. If you are going to do a flush....you need to flush with restore first, then flush with restore+ or ford's VC-9. I paid around $50 for a gallon of restore+. I just flushed my coolant system a couple months ago. I also back flushed it 3 times.

vc-9 will do just fine, how many did you buy? The workshop manual procedure calls for 2 quarts.

Re: Coolant Flush Chemicals

Ya I just bought one quart. Need to get a second one. So would you say get a gallon of restore and one more quart of vc-9. Of just go for restore +. Trying to figure out what's cost worthy and effective.
