Is that muddy or more like jelly? That sorta looks like the white honey type stuff I got out when I did my flush. I assume silicate gel.

Holy hell. How many miles on the filter? I had a slight trace of that stuff in mine, but nowhere near anything like that. I had mostly sand.

Would the filter help the oil cooler any?
I guess I am just being optimistic.
