coolant

So I installed my new degas bottle today and drained down a gallon of coolant and noticed it was really dark...Almost black...there's no oil in it and the consistency stayed the same...what might cause this...Almost by one else ever experience this?

Re: coolant

It could be rust in the system, i would do a flush of the system with vc9. But be ready to do an oil cooler in it because the flush will break alot of stuff loose and more than likely plug the cooler. then go back with a good ELC.

Re: coolant

Be very thorough with your flush... Flush with distilled until clear or a pH of 7. You might want to skip the chemical flush if you just did your cooler.
