I doubt it, I'm currently on my 2 second filter now, first one was shot with crap in it.

When you first install it to help clean the system you change the filter every 3 months, basicly you can leave the 4 filter on longer, the first 3 filters is to help clean it up.

No a flush wouldnt do anything like what the Coolant filtration does. Its good to invest. whole kit is about 140 I believe and filters are only 10 bucks.

I have the dieselsite coolant filter and on the first filter change I got about a 1/4 cup of sand out. The second time it wasn't much but imagine what that stuff does to your water pump. I added ball valves to mine to make filter changes easier. It cost me $119 and the filters you can pick up at Napa for $10. Heres a pic...

how are you getting sand in your cooling system?

It is whats left over from when they cast the block. Cast blocks are made in molds of sand.

Am i taking it right then that you may get a small amount of sand in filter for the life of the engine. I may try making my own . I have been looking for a filter head.

You can get a filter plate 11/32 or 11/16 IIRC at napa or grainger and get the ball valves at grainger for like .67 a piece
