Cummins coolant

I have decided to do a coolant test
I purchased a fleet guard coolant test kit
It's being shipped Cummins suggested it
Any body had any info on this and if needed what additives are used or needed
Coolant flush cost $490 but Cummins suggested test strips first
Any info or advice welcome

I would think that for your engine, the coolant is called "Final charge". It is supposed to last indefinitely. However at 5 years they recommend a refresher additive, about $15 for a quart.

Have a nice day - Darrel

You're on the right track - do the fluid analysis and call Cummins back - they're very good about providing recommendations based on the info you give them. Try to figure out if the fluid is the original 2008 or later - that will help with their recommendations. When all said and done, if they recommend a flush and replacement, on a 10 year fluid - that's not a bad idea. If that fluid doesn't do its job you're in for a very expensive repair ...
