Dieselsite Coolant Filter

I am going to be installing the coolant filter this weekend.
With the Venturi done, do you still tie into the the hose and take return to the bottom port on the degas bottle or remove the cap on the upper port and return there?


Thanks.

Will do. Unless someone tells me different I am going to leave the cap on the top of the degass and just tee into the line that will return to the bottom.

Don't know about the 08 but here's some pics of my filter after only about 1200 miles with ford gold coolant still in it. you'll be glad your installing one.

I had one on my 04. I flushed the system prior so my filter might have lasted a little longer, still the same one was on it when I sold it, about a year old. I will do the same with this truck. I am not a big believer of leaving the original fluids in anything for too long. Break in stuff is hard on parts.

On my 04, I tee'd into the small return line that goes back to the bottom of the reservior. I think thats what the instructions said for my truck. Seems to work well.

Installed the kit. Pretty nice kit.
Just FYI. You will only have about 6" of extra hose.
Drained the coolant from the radiator and the block, only put in a little less than 6 gallons for people that are going to do this with a coolant change.
Forgot to Add.
My truck has a little over 15000 on it. The plug from the block already had some minor buildup of scale and such. Might keep that in mind when thinking coolant is good for 100,000.

Exclamation

Any pics of this installed?

There is a lot of crap in that filter! I may do this before the inline trans filter.

I will take some tonight.
The mounting location is different on the 08's compared to the 07 and down.
08's tell you to mount them on the frame under the passenger door. The 07 and down says to mount it on the passenger die bolts for the radiator on the core support.
