I swapped out the coolant bypass filter on my father in laws truck today.His truck might see 100 miles every couple of months so it was the original filter Iinstalled last year.He still runs the gold coolant the truck had a new oil cooler and egr cooler in 2011.
There was about 3 to 4 teaspoons of very fine casting sand in the filter and housing.
My truck had almost zero sand after the filter swP AT 500 miles and it;s been the same for the 2 filters since.
Eventually the filters will capture the vast majority of sand over time.
