Coolant filters are not a new idea to the diesel engine world. They come in most OEM applications for medium duty and OTR tractor trailer rigs. The idea was somehow tossed aside for light duty applications, most likely due to cost. For our light duty trucks it is a very important issue that needed to be addressed. Many diesel engines - like the Powerstroke - are cast with sand in the process. This sand is NOT completely removed from the system. In fact, much of this sand leaches out of the casting over time. The sand wears away at water pump seals, hoses and radiators. Removal of this sand can greatly increase your water pump life.
In addition to sand, there are other things that the filter is removing. SCAs, or supplemental coolant additives used in protecting against cavitation, often flake off the walls. This "precipitate" is a very abrasive particle - like a scale - floating around freely in the system unless caught by a filter.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The DIESELSITE Coolant Filter Kit is a bypass-style system that filters a small amount of the coolant on each pass. By using a spin on filter we make it easy for you to change your coolant filter at regular intervals. These filters will remove all solid particles -- new or old. It is never too late to install a coolant filter in order to extend the longevity of your cooling system components. While you cannot reverse the damage that is already done, you can eliminate further damage from occurring. This kit is a must for every truck.
The DIESELSITE Coolant Filter Install Kit includes all fittings, hose and stainless steel clamps needed for installation.
FILTER CHANGE INTERVALS:
Use one filter every three months for the first nine months after installation. The lack of flow into the expansion tank is an indication that your filter is plugged. Change the filter if it should plug before the 3-month interval. After the 4th filter is installed your filter should be changed once per year.

Hey what kind of filter does this kit take??
The included filter is a Baldwin B5134.
Can the filter be changed without loosing any coolant? I did not see ball valves included in this kit like some others.?
No. You will always lose some coolant, as there is going to be coolant in the dirty filter. You can either pre-fill the new filter, or top off the system after the change. However, if you are referring to spilling coolant from the bulkhead, this does not come with ball valves. You can add them on your own if you'd like. -Ben
