2010 F150 4.63v coolant

Hi I have a 2010 F150 with a 130klm . The Users Manual says that you should have you coolant service at Five Years and when I asked at the dealer they said just as long as the coolant is clean just leave it as it is a long life coolant . My truck will be nine years old this year and what do you recommend for a cooling service / flush

I recommend taking a hydrometer to it too see if it's still any good.

I think the dealer is right. But I bought an antifreeze refractometer to test my antifreeze. They have some reasonably priced ones available on Amazon.
