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?
