Yes! You would be surprised with how much grass seed can get in there! The radiator traps alot more because the fins are much closer together.

never used it, the zep brake kleen will break it down really fast and wont hurt aluminum, should come out like water after the zep hits it, u could try either one, maybe one will work better than the other, did u loose a seal on ur turbo, or just residual over time?

You could always use some dawn dishwasher detergent. It will break down the oil and then will wash out.

I did a CCV reroute on my 02 and waited several monthes then pulled the cooler to put in a 6.0. I set the 7.3 cooler on end and the next day there was a puddle of oil the size of a basketball. A good cleaning couldn't hurt...
