Coolant Filter cut away results

Just changed out my coolant filter this afternoon, thought some of you guys who are on the fence about buying one would like to see what all it pulled out..

Keep in mind this was installed after a restore and restore + flush with ~25 gal of distilled water, running Rotella Ultra ELC. The filter stayed hot after the first 500 miles, so I left it there until it stopped getting hot when the truck was at full temp. It has ~4,000mi on it now. I'm pretty impressed with everything it pulled out, I didn't dump it on a paper plate but the crud is almost even with the top of the spring (~1" tall) in the bottom of the canister. The filter was a Wix 24070 that came with my Sinister filter kit. I can't image whats floating around in a stock system that has never been flushed. Enjoy

My first filter was about a third that amount of stuff.

Second filter at about 1000 miles was very little.

Third filter stopped flowing, Couldn't figure out what caused it to stop. But something must have coated the paper, just didn't figure it out.

Fourth one, and different coolant, almost 10,000 miles and still flowing.

Yea I was surprised how much was in there. I look forward to see how long it takes the new one to stop flowing.

Did you connect the line before your heater valve and were the valves open on the lines from/to the filter?

Ya'lls must not be working as good as mine was, maybe they put a hole in the filters they sold you or something I'm hoping mine will be clean from here on out as well.

I love seeing these. Everyones looks different and everyones looks scary!

For those of you who DONT have a coolant filter, just cruise these threads for a few hours.......

I just get sand out of mine. First one was bad at 500, 2nd one was just as bad at 3000, third was clean at 5. This one has been on for I guess about 12. I should look at it but its still hot...
