Hello,

I bought an '86 Ford F-250 with a 6.9L Turbo Diesel a few days ago. Having got it home, I started fluid changes, and basic maintenence. I got some FleetGuard test strips, and dunked one in the coolant... Results were:

Glycol 45%
Molybdate 0ppm
Nitrite 800ppm

Is there any way to tell if I have the proper coolant in, just missing the SCA? Or weather I have to replace it. The coolant looks pretty new, so if it's just the SCA that would save me the money and effort. However, if I can't be certain, I'll definitely replace it to be sure.

Thanks!

DONT HAVE MUCH IDEA ABOUT IT AS IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO TELL WHAT IS THE RIGHT COOLANT WHICH CAN BE USED IN YOUR VEHICLE. I WOULD ADVICE TO SHOW UP YOUR VEHICLE TO ANY GOOD MECHANIC AS HE CAN TELL YOU FOR THIS QUERY

i would say that this coolant is fine to use although if you are not satisfied with its quality then you can have Golden Cruiser Premium its the best in the series of coolants and very much effective for engines
