I got the car a while back and it has been driving fine with no more mixing. The mechanic did clean the cooling system, but there are still some traces of oil. I will be removing the radiator and the coolant reservoir to give them a thorough cleaning. Will probably change the hoses too. But before I do all of this I want to flush the system, and upon some search, I found out that using some engine degreaser with the coolant would dissolve all of the oil emulsion, but I don't want to risk damaging the new head gasket, cylinder head, water pump and radiator etc. Anybody knows if this would be harsh on engine and cooling system?
Using washing detergent is out of the question because I already tried it before the head gasket replacement and my water pump started leaking after a while, and the radiator started leaking too, but those where original 20 year old parts that probably needed to be changed, but who knows if the detergent had anything to do with it or not..
