Plugged coolant filter in 10 days

I just put a coolant filter on my truck a little over a week ago. Put my hand on the filter after driving for 10 minutes and it was cool. I can't get a filter till tomarrow, and i will change it and cut it open for a looksee.

Is it out of the ordanary to plugged a filter so fast on initial installation? Looks to me that since it plugged up so fast that it shows that a filter coolant filter is an important mod.

I think I've read that is what happens, there seems to be a lot of casting sand that they are unable to get out. So when you install a filter it clogs the filter pretty quick and the next couple as well.

Would be good and bad that its sand that plugged it, but also hope for your sake that its not something floating around in your coolant system....

I was told the casting sand rumor is BS. There is an explanation for it which i've heard a few times. Dale at tymar performance explained it to me once, it makes sense. Give him a call if you really want to know, its been a while and i dont quite remember.

When I drained my radiator on my 00 into a clean bucket, there certainly was something black and gritty in the bottom of the bucket, so something is in the coolant system.
