After replacing both my oil cooler & HPOP recently (265000) miles, I ran across a site:
They suggest the following:
"The oil filter filtration system also has several problems. According to the OE oil filter marketing information, the 6.0L Power Stroke engine can demand up to 18 ½ gallons of oil a minute. The filter specifications for engine oil filter shows it flows less than half of that amount. When the volume of oil needed exceeds the filters capacity, the filter bypass valve opens. This allows unfiltered oil to join the filtered oil bound for the lubrication and injection oil circuits."
If this is the case, aren't we all risking potential engine damage?
At what RPM would the 6.0 demand 18 1/2 gal per minute (5000)?
Hoping one of the many experts here can discredit this claim and give us some peace of mind..
