Sand all over on flush .... Buy coolant filter

Well, I just did my egr delete and put a new oil cooler in last night. I did the first flush with simple green and ran it for an hour. I then drained at the radiator through the pet****. There was not a lot of sand or oil coming from the radiator so I continued with my drain. Next I pulled the plugs off the block and drained into a clean bucket. I was amazed at how much sand came out of the block. I would say there was at least 4 tablespoons of sand from what I had caught. I cant believe there was that much in the system. I will be flushing with VC-9 next along with several straight water flushes to clean out everything that I possibly can. After that I will be putting a coolant filtration system on. The only problem I have left to deal with is the intercooler hoses that keep blowing off because I got oil on them. I just figured I would share my findings with everyone on the board.

Yeah, that's the exact reason many of us have opted for the coolant filter. Mine is exactly like the Dieselsite kit. You might also consider getting the intercooler boots from Dieselsite. They are resistant to oil and won't keep blowing off on you. I just bought mine and posted a thread about it.

a ccv mod would also help keep those boots clean.

Looking into this right now. I am going to use some brake cleaner and hairspray on the boots first then go from there.
