Hi my name is XXX. X will try to help. Pick up some powdered "Cascade" brand dish wash detergent for dish washers. Drain cooling system, add cascade and straight water, run to temp, drain, repeat, drain and repeat as necessary. Final flush with straight water and then fill with coolant. Be very careful when adding different coolants to any cooling system as some coolants are not compatible. If there are any restrictions after flushing your cooling system as mentioned above then some dissassembly might be required. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using JA
The freightliner dealership did not accept; it voids the warranty on the parts they installed on the engine
