Coolant filter- before or after flush?

I am heading out of town tomorrow morning and just got my coolant filter. Should I wait to install it after and flush and I go with ELC or should I put it on now. I just don't have time today to do full flush.

Thanks.

put it on right away! run a couple thousand miles before you do the flush to catch as much crap as you can

Coolant Filter

Put it on ASAP. I did the same thing; I put it on before a road trip and it gave the filter a chance to continually work on the system while on the trip.

When I swapped my first coolant filter out, the coolant coming out of it looked like chocolate milk. Take an extra filter with you just in case your's gets plugged up before your trip ends. Side note, only hand tighten the filter, run it and check for leaks. If you put in on to tight, it is a pain in the rear to get off.

This will give you a jump start on getting all the crud out before your flush.

Installed it this afternoon. Everything went well. I had my truck plugged in since it was a little cool and I was surprised at how hot the coolant was coming out of the heater core when the truck was cool.
