As I posted on this in 9 of 17 we need to know what coolant we have in our diesel engines and then follow that guide lines to keep that coolant doing it's job. The harder of the two is if you don't know what coolant you have is to find that out. To important to neglect this important part of diesel engine service.

Anyone want to make some money here in Fort Worth, Tx ?!?
There are a couple of great thread on the forum of members exchanging their own antifreeze. If the system is clean it can be simple as it isn't critical to get all the old out. Dirty, then several flushes and that is where the time comes in. Obviously you want as much as you can get drained however the antifreeze is compatible so a gallon or so left isn't going to be a big deal in a 12 gallon or so system. Most of the shops you take it to are not going to go the extra mile like the guys on the forum did. Again, dirty system another ball game. The Cummins literature documents the compatibility for those wanting to see for themselves. Shops often go by color and unfortunately there are three or more colors out there and several variations as well. It is best to have your own jug after you know which antifreeze you have.
