Coolant filter change intervals...

Alright guys I done the coolant flush and added a bypass filter back in March. According to the manufacturer they say to change the filter every three months for the first year and then once a year after that. So heres my question. I probably haven't but 1000 to 1500 miles on my truck since the install three months ago so should I go ahead and replace the filter or should I wait untilt I get a little more milage on the old filter.

Check to see if it's plugged. Feel temp of hose after engine is up to operating temps.

If the hose is hot going to degas bottle, it is still working, if not, change it.

Or, like me, change it and cut it open and see what you have been collecting.

Your choice.
