Well I haven't replaced one but I just looked it up (fordparts.com) and msrp is $1512.11. Although I hear they can be cleaned, but thats only something a dealer can do. I don't know if there is a point where its so plugged that it cant be cleaned. I also read somewhere 100k miles is a good place to clean it, but don't hold me to that. Are you having problems with yours?

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

I've heard $2k+ if the dealer does it. Parts alone are around $1500 or so.

not having any problems with mine currently. Hopefully it will last for a long time, even though the truck has 93,000 on it already.. Not sure if I would buy a new one or go with the delete and a tuner for about the same $,

if its all metal inside and no special media, you could take it to a radiator shop and have it dipped. i do this with heat exchanges for injection machines and it works well.....just have to take it off....not to hard

definitely not all metal inside... it's a ceramic matrix with what I'm guessing is a high quartz content because it's hard as heck!!!

I would think we could simply take an air gun and blow it out for starters...sort of emptying out a vacuum cleaner bag, so to speak.

There was another poster, GA Lawn Care, in another forum who recently pressure washed his out and it seemed to take care of his problems. Haven't seen a long term update on how it's been working.

I also see some vids on youtube of TDI guys pressure washing their dpfs as well
