Coolant System Flush
I've read the posts about installing a coolant system filter and the concern about casting sand or other junk potentially blocking the passage ways of the Engine Oil Cooler and EGR Cooler. I'm assuming that a good power flush of the coolant system would be a good first step, and this should probably be done even if I were not going to install a coolant filter.
Is there a fixed way of doing power flushes? meaning, is there a low spot in the system where it is best to get the sediment out? Also, I have the Espar hydronic flat plate system, so I would think that I need to start that system up as the flush is being done, to allow those lines to be purged as well.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
