Roy,

If you are not able to open this (it is on the Caterpillar RV Engine Owners Club Website) let me know and I can cut and paste it.

That is the biggest problem for a DIY'er. The disposal of an extremely hazardous substance. It doesn't take much antifreeze to be lethal to any and all pets and other animals.

Check with your city vehicle maintenance department. Many accept recyclable coolant.

My Country Coach owner's manual includes a very detailed procedure for changing the coolant in our ISC engine. The manual isn't in front of me now, but it includes draining, flushing with water, flushing with a chemical (can't remember what), then flushing with water again, then filling with coolant.

I didn't want to take it on myself because I didn't have any reasonable way to dispose of all the stuff being flushed out of the engine.

Instead, I went to a nearby dealer, and had them do the flushing procedure, and then fill the cooling system with an extended service interval coolant.

Now we test once a year, and haven't had to do a complete replacement yet.
