Can someone explain why I should not use motorcraft gold coolant in my 2001 7.3? Other than the manual says use the green!
I understand the additives are already in the gold.....


thanks

There are no additives in the gold. Originally, Ford said you didn't need SCA with the gold, then they changed their mind. The gold does turn into a gelatinous snot when it gets hot. Kills the 6.0 oil cooler but our passages are larger and you might be ok. Your better choice would be an ELC that uses a different protection method than SCA to prevent cavitation. I use Rotella ELC myself.
