Coolant filter?

I installed a coolant filter on my 06 and after 600 miles I changed it, cut the used one open and it was sparkling clean, why would that be? Do the 2006 and newer 6.0's not have the sand problem? BTW the truck has 62,000 miles on it.

Thanks,
Randall

Is the coolant not flowing through it right? My first filter poured sand out just from tipping it over.

Interesting. I'm about to install a coolant filter on my '06 with 55k and would like to know the reason behind that also.

i dont think you have enough fluid going through it.these engines are cast with sand and unless all of it is in your oil cooler then you should have some in there,even if its been flushed.

major league to answer your question i would say no unless you find a filter that they sell to fit on the filter manifold.most companies you buy these kits from hold the monopoly on making it so only their filter will fit the manifold,but they are ridiculously priced for the most part.before you buy a kit shop around.there are a couple out there that advertise other filters working.you could also piece together your own kit from stuff bought at a parts store.its all in the innovator.

My 06 has had 3 coolent filter changes and casting sand in all 3 the second fiter about 1/2 of what the first had the first one installed at 20k and have 26k on it now so they have sand some more than others
You need some gauges to tell if your coolers are plugged with casting sand i like the Edge Insight because when the stock gauges move it is to late.

My 06 had no sand in the first coolant filter. Second filter had a few grains of sand. Third, after several trips to the Sierras with the truck camper, had about a teaspoon of sand.

Look at it this way - it's relatively cheap insurance for your oil and egr coolers.

I've had my Insight for a few days now and noticed at my EOT never gets more than 1 or 2 degrees above my ECT But most of the time the ECT is above the EOT (even after I've been driving for 20 min). I guess that is really good to know, right?

Doesn't that mean is that there is not even the slightest sign of plugging yet?

I bet if you drive on the highway at 60+ for 20 min that will flip. At least that is what mine does. I'm still within a few degrees but the EOT is warmer than the ECT on the highway.
