Any recommendation on flush procedure for turbo diesel engines ?
Would like to do more then just drain and replace with MB coolant.
Planning on replacing thermostat at the same time.
Thanks for your help.

If you want to drain the block, you can take out one of the threaded plugs on the side of the block to drain it. The radiator has a drain built in.

Thanks, Benzmac !
What is this I hear about some sort of a MB flush stuff that can run in the engine for about 15-minutes then drained/flushed before refilling with MB coolant ?
Also, would it be ok to use the new brown/red Prestone as a replacement coolant i/o of the MB coolant ?
