water filter

ordered the water filter installation kit from dieselsite, was very impressed with the quality of the filter base. installation was easy, even installed the cut off valves. will give it 3 months and cut the filter open.

mentioned this to the service writer at my ford truck repair site. they were fixing problems with oil line on my work truck, not the truck i installed the filter on, but its next.
he did not think the filter installation was a necessary thing, he was being nice but i don't think he is much into changes on these trucks not there from the start,

You need to replace the first 3 filters every 3 months (or sooner if it clogs) and at the 4th filter, thay can be changed yearly.

Unfortunately lots of the service writers don't understand mechanics and just write the symptoms you give them. I have a good one at my dealer as well as a really good mechanic if I need one.

Ford is still putting their Gold coolant in them even though there is pretty substantial evidence that the silicates it contains is what is causing the oil cooler clogging problem to begin with.

Don't just put a filter on it. Flush it good and and refill with Cat, Rotella, Fleetrite, ELC coolant. It is pretty much good for the life of the engine and contains no silicates.
