Coolant filter after 5 weeks and 2500kms

Did coolant flush and changed over to Cat EC-1 ELC. Changed filter and tore it appart. Lots of sand and silt after that short time (1560 miles)...

Edit: Sorry I thought the pictures looked better than that, the detail just isn't there

Dang. Where did you plumb in your coolant filter? DIY or did you buy a kit?

I'm always amazed to see the crap that comes out of these trucks cooling systems. Yours isn't too bad but its still too much. How did you flush the truck prior to switching to ELC? How has your oil cooler held up?

Last week I had to have the oil and egr cooler replaced by ford under warranty, I asked if he did a coolant flush to clean out the system the tech said he used some sort of chemical flush. Then refilled it with ford premium gold. Put only 200 miles on it so I did 3 tap water flushes ran tap water engine running heat on continuously for about 20 minutes then did 2 distilled water flushes and then put in the CAT ELC coolant...

It's a Dieselsite bypass coolant filter w/ ball valves...

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.

That's interesting, sounds like a lot in your father's filter but it was the first one so that makes sense. I use a Dieselsite coolant filter sys and they say to change the filter every 3 months for the first three, then once a year. My truck is a daily driver. Since I changed the coolant, I had to replace the filter early... I'm glad I did, it's interesting and scary how long that stuff can stay in a engine...

What extended warranty do you have? I have the extra care on my 2005 and also had to have mine replaced last week. Ford would not cover it under warranty even though it is the 3rd time in 95000 miles my truck has had it done. I called ford customer service and got nowhere. Just curious. Thanks.

Ford does not give a crap about their customers. Makes me wonder the cost effectiveness of having a cust service dept in the first place considering they do NOTHING. Wonder if Ford has a superduty Facebook page to put them on blast
