Hi all.
I have a 1996 with a 4.0L that only has 58k miles. It had a blown head gasket because it was not maintained very well by the previous owner and the cooling system was never flushed. The coolant had to be topped off about every 2 weeks and I noticed small amounts of coolant leaking from the engine.

I had the head gasket replaced by a local shop 2 weeks ago and tonight when I was checking fluid levels I noticed that the coolant has flecks of copper in it. The system was supposed to have been flushed when the gasket was replaced. I don't want to start throwing accusations around but...

Can anyone tell me why there would be flecks of copper in the coolant that was not there before the gasket was replaced?

Thanks,
Joe.
