Do you recommend a coolant filter in my situation?

Hey guys..

I was thinking about ordering a Dieselsite coolant filter kit today for my truck but questioned my purchase do to the current standing of my rig.

I replaced the radiator a few months back with the ProVista radiator and all has been well. When I changed it out, I got the updated rad hoses from Ford as well as flushed the truck with VC9 and restore then distilled water, finally filled it with distilled and CAT EC-1 mix.

The truck has 83K on the clock. Do you think a coolant filter kit would benefit me after the flush and having 80K miles to rinse out sand from the block? Don't want to spend money on unnecessary parts!

Thanks gents

Cody

If you have a OEM oil cooler then a coolant filter is a must! I run one and I've got a BPD oil cooler. Never hurts to have clean fluid.

Another vote for a coolant filter. It always helps to filter out any debris.

I hear all these mods like oil cooler and coolant filter, and replace radiator. And since I'm new to 6.4 could someone explain these? Never had to deal with them in my OBS. and I don't want to put my truck in jeopardy down the road.

Do a search on 6.4 coolant filters ... tons of info on here, I have a sinister one and i didn`t see any real difference between the dieselsite one. I was torn between which one i was going to buy then PTP had the sinister one on sale so money made the choice for me.I have changed it 3 times now at 5000 miles per filter.Last change was pretty clear so i think i am going to go 15000 for the next one.From what i have read i am changing the filters too often but it makes me sleep better at night at the cost of $12.00
