Coolant Filter Change After The First 500 Miles

Finally changed the filter today. Around 500 miles since doing the flush, EGR delete and oil cooler replacement. Looks pretty nasty to me.

This is what was in the bottom of the filter.

Incredible
I pulled mine apart for the first time which was roughly 30k miles, and it wasn't anywhere near that. Granted, it's a 7.3 but still.

That has to be the worst I have seen for such a short period of time.
You put this on AFTER a flush??

How long you going to run #2 filter? Hope you post pictures of it also.

I would be worried about new cooler after seeing that. What did your flush water look like?

The filter was not there during the flush, installed after flush.

The flush water was nasty but did not seem to be that bad.

Downside to the flush was that I was not able to get the drivers side plug out so I would say that is a major player in why so much gunk.

I am pulling the filter again in 300-500 miles and will tear it apart as well.

I am concerned about the new oil cooler also. My temps are only a few degrees apart running at 70 mph.

The flush was done as described in directions with exception of the drivers side plug to include the restore and restore +

I'd run your new filter for maybe 200 miles, and cut it open to see what you have. I would be real concerned about the new oil cooler too. With that much junk in the system, it doesn't look good.....

Why couldn't you get the plug out? Seized in there?

What coolant are you running now?
