Completed Van Sportsmobile Pictures

[/attachment]These are some pictures of our completed Sportsmobile. We made it back from California with the exception of having a stop in Arizona to get a new turbo installed with only 40,000 miles!! I don't know why, seems early for a turbo to go bad. Does anybody have any idea what a good engine coolant would be to use or should I stick with ford gold. I plan on doing a full radiator and engine flush. Also, thinking about installing an edge insight CTS monitoring system. Thanks in advance.

I researched that Evans waterless coolant when I did my EGR/Oil Cooler repair. Looks like some pretty awesome stuff, but I didn't put it in because I wanted the ability to top off with water in an emergency. There's a whole procedure to get the water out and apparently you have to make sure it stays out.

After a flush with Fleetguard Restore to get all the MC Gold out of there, I put in the Zerex "Extreme" EC-1 stuff. Silicate free and NAPA carries it.

If you're messing with the cooling system, you should add a coolant filter.

Re: Completed Van Sportsmobile Pictures

I highly recommend Zerex CAT/Cumins Extended Life Diesel coolant (EC-1). Ford gold is ok as long as you replace it regularly.



Be sure to keep green out (Quick-lube places always top off with green), or you will end up with Tapioca plugging up your oil cooler. Even the "Universal" coolants do not belong in the newer EGR-equipped diesels.

Re: Completed Van Sportsmobile Pictures

Xerex G-05 is widely available and compatible with Ford coolant. Be sure and run a coolant filter and monitor oil/water temperature delta.

What is the big advantage of that Mike other than it's compatible with the Ford stuff?

Re: Completed Van Sportsmobile Pictures

It's the same stuff, just widely available. Probably cheaper than from a Ford dealer.
