6.7 Coolant Filter

I had one of these on my 6.0. From what I understand it was necessary because sand was used in the engine block casting process and left overs found their way into the coolant slowly wearing out parts. Does anyone see a need for this on the 6.7?? Are our blocks cast in the same manner?

I have been considering this but it is not cheap and would like to know how necessary it is too.

The one on my last truck was a by-pass filter as well and had very little flow. With these long hoses and low velocity most solids will probably drop out before ever reaching the filters.

Someone needs to try it for a while and cut the filter open.... awww come on!!!

The passages were very tight in the old 6.0 oil cooler. This sand and debris would get caught reducing the coolers efficiency and causing trouble downstream with low coolant flow. Our coolers look very much like the old 6.0 cooler......Food for thought.

But our coolers are able to be changed in 5 minutes vs the hours for a 6.0 cooler. The biggest problem with the 6.0 coolers plugging was that the lack of coolant leaving the plugged cooler starved the EGR cooler causing it to overheat and burst.

So tru I remember it well.

Looking at the 6.7 drawings, the outlets for all heat exchangers on the secondary cooling system return to the degas bottle. The engine oil cooler, which is on the primary system, returns to the bottom radiator hose.

We should not see the same issues where one plugged exchanger can starve the next in line.

The secondary system has no parts in in that are cast, so no casting debris. Very clean system. The primary still needs one. I believe that diesel site is redoing there kit fort his reason.

I just installed the new kit last week. It is just the primary, fairly nice kit but pricey. I don't drive the truck much unless it is pulling the fifth wheel so it will be a while before I change the first filter. I will cut it open then. Easy install, I let my 13 year old son take the lead on it. This is one of those things that I won't know if it worked, I would only know if it doesn't. Next will be the fuel/water separator from diesel site. Maybe later this year.

Wasn't another issue with our 6.0's clogging up was the coolant itself? The 6.7's use a different coolant and I'm hoping it doesn't have the same gelling problems as the old ford gold coolant did.

I asked this same question in the general section. you can take a look. I'm do for a coolant flush in 3K so was thinking of adding the one from DieselSite.

Should you filter your coolant?
