Use liquid dish washer soap, it doesn't foam.

Yea I have heard of people using mean green and restor radaror flush. You should think of replacing all your radiator hoses my buddy is a master Powerstroke mechanic and he says if you don't that the hoses will break down and fail due to the oil. But I don't know.

cascade works well - low suds.

I have also heard of using the simple green.

Add some Calgon to soften the water. Detergent works just as well with less suds.

Good luck.

Simple Green HD is what a Tech I know uses. It is not easy! His recommendation is to replace all rubber components in the coolant system as well as the radiator and the heater core after flushing as much out as possible.
