Intrested in your replys to the question. I too am getting the parts and pieces to install a filter on my 01 PS.

From what I have read, the flow back into the coolant resovoir is the indicator for replacement time,,, if the flow becomes slow or stops, it's time to change filter..

I bought the kit from Dieselsite. It connects to the pump for intake and passes the cleaned fluid into the overflow. The bad thing is it bypasses the thermostat. I didn't do any comparisons before and after, but it dose feel like it takes longer to warm up. For checking the filter, XR-2001 is correct, just look at the flow in the reservoir.

On the plus side, the amount of junk the filter catches and the piece of mind it brings is 100% worth it.

I plan on getting the dieselsite kit also, didn't know it bypasses the thermostat, the thing takes long enough to warm up as it is.

whoa...it does NOT bypass the thermostat since it only takes a small portion of the flow out the side of the water pump. i dare say its a minute percentage of flow, but over time, you will eventually filter the entire system...and i have NOT noticed an extended warm-up time either

coolant

well my coolant filter does by-pass the thermostat idk how yours would not. unless you have it going to the hose before the thermostat. the reason it will take longer to warm up because the motor is not holding all the coolant in till the themostate opens up. i would say it prolly take about double the time to warm up as it used to. may just have to close the valve when it is colder outside.

It's a worthwhile mod, and if the warm up time is an issue, something could be rigged up. Perhaps a solenoid and a temperature activated switch.

perhaps the word "bypass" is causing the confusion here?!? the amount of coolant being siphoned off (for lack of a better term) is insignificant at best, when you consider how much fluid is being moved by the pump...numbers i have seen quoted between 30 and 50 gallons per minute

im not gonna tell anyone that their observations are wrong, but we moved here from dallas, and actually live in the foothills where the temps are dam near the same. so i can tell you with 100% certainty that my warm-up time has not increased a bit...this coming from my wife who is ALWAYS cold
