I'm getting ready to add a coolant filter to my X. I have been reading a lot on here about them and researching different ones. However, tonight an idea hit me. Why couldn't I just take a remote oil filter kit (like this
) and put it in my heater line? Seems to me like it would do the same thing, and the filters would be easy to find and buy. Am I missing something, or would this be a good (and even better CHEAP) route to go?
The Coolant filter needs to be on a bypass system, if you put it directly inline on the heater hose, and the filter becomes clogged, you will not be getting coolant returned to the motor and may cause overheating.
