Finally changed the filter today. Around 500 miles since doing the flush, EGR delete and oil cooler replacement. Looks pretty nasty to me.
EXACTLY!I don't like that there is no way that should look like that if the flush 500 miles ago was done correctly.
I hope the filter was on there perhaps during the flush? otherwise I would be afraid for your new oil cooler's longevity.
So you're saying add restore to the coolant or drain the coolant and do another distilled water flush?I don't think changing in 3-500 miles will do a lot as they say That take the Cake something went wrong way wrong. If you could not get the block plug out that is some of the problem. This is what i would do pull the t/stat add restore block off the Rad and drive it like you stole it watch the temps then use the hose to flush i flush with distilled water but this is different the Rad has to be coated plus the heater core so you have to get the chemicals in to brake that crap down.:doh:
what would that matter in 500 miles ?I'm willing to bet that he went back with the ford coolant, just what it looks like to me.
