What kind of filter are you using? What's the brand and part number? Make sure that your not using a charged coolant filter!!!

Yes, it's casting sand and a little silicate goo from the old ford gold. Now your glad you have a filter, right.

Seeing those pics only scares me enough to want to get a coolant filtration system for my ride ASAP!!! Tommy, just be glad that THAT is material that is being filtered out of your cooling system. I find that it doesn't matter how well, or how hard you try to flush your cooling system out, you will never be able to clean everything 100%. This is why it's not uncommon to need to replace two or three of those filters out within a short period of time, after an engine has "been into" if I'm reading everything correctly.

That's usually what happens after about the third coolant filter change from what I've heard by other fellow members.
