So I installed the coolant filter

The filter has been on for 2,997 miles. Full of gunk.














Im going to run a couple more filters before I flush my coolant.

Worthwhile mod indeed. I'm curious did you install it on a freshly flushed system?

No. I did not flush the system before the install.

Yet another mod I need to do. What kind of spread sheet or program do you use to keep track of maintenance intervals?

I use Microsoft Excel. Nothing to complicated. I keep track of the date and mileage for oil change, fuel filters, coolant filter, transmission fluid, tire rotations.....

I also keep a date book in the truck that I keep track of my fuel purchases.
