Did anyone try Frigie Fresh? I rather think that it smells good and supposedly it sanitizes the system. My dealership uses it about every 10K as part of a scheduled maintenance. June

Thanks all. I will try a solution of TSP powder and dishwashing liquid detergent in a pail, and soak the heater core in it.
