    Thanks for the reps! I still run the green coolant from Ford, and monitor the SCA levels with test strips. When Ford put a different coolant in the 2002's, they were really adamant about not wanting the 99-01 folks to use anything but their green. They were worried about the chemical compatibility with the elastomeric seal materials used in the heater core. Since the HVAC system has nothing to do with International, I did not jump on the "big diesel" bandwagon and go to ELC coolants. I wanted to hear from Ford first, because the HVAC system is Ford's. I think Ford finally validated their gold coolant as backwardly compatible. I don't know if they have validated ELCs. Ford produced a chart to sort out the different coolants available for the various Ford diesels. I'm due for another coolant change soon, and will probably go Ford green w/FW-16 unless I Ford validates the ELC chemistry with the Ford seals they used throughout the system (not just the engine).
