The answer to this is probably on this forum somewhere but I have no idea how to search for it.
My 2015 6.7 has this Pink/Orange stuff in it from Ford and I'm not sure what that is. Any recommendations on the best coolant for these engines would be greatly appreciated...

Personally, I'd just stick with the motorcraft specialty orange. Easy to get, inexpensive. I've heard of other guys mixing the gold or green, and then were forced to get the entire system flushed.

I'm really just curious about this. With the high cost of buying one of these trucks, and the high cost of repair, why not just stick with what the owner's manual says? There are not many $$$ difference. Again, I'm just curious.

Ford Orange is basically GM Dexcool (you can Google it and see many sites discussing this). However, I would not stray from the MC brand of coolant simply from the fact the cost savings are not that much and I would not want Ford to balk at any warranty issues, especially since diesels are hard on coolant and it has additives to minimize cylinder wall cavitation.

Thanks.....

Thanks for all the reply's to my post. Motorcraft SpecialtyOrange it will be as I usually stick with the manufacture's recommendationswhen it comes to this stuff. I wasn’t very clear in my post but I was justlooking for the M.R. coolant and I hadn’t checked my owner’s manual yet. Thanks again to all that answered....
