2 questions

1. My degas bottle looks a little dirty. Is this oil in my coolant? Do I need a filter/should I be worried?

2. What is the motor in the pic I posted right behind the degas bottle?

The motor looks like the vacuum pump. My 7.3 pump looks very similar

Yes that is the vacuum pump. The degas bottle does look a little dirty. What color is the coolant? It looks red. I would highly recommend a coolant filter.

I have one but havent installed it but from what i read YES it does. There has been people on here that have cut them open and had sand in them.

If your vacume pump is running all the time you have a leak some where. Mine did that it took forever to find lol

Mine only runs for about 20 seconds when I turn my key on but it sounds terrible and runs rough.
