Re: 6.0 Powerstroke Coolant flush procedure

This may be a stupid question but new to diesels. Just bought 2005 F350, 98,800 miles. I've replaced degas cap with a Stant and also installed Performance Machine Coolant filter. I plan to do flush/fill at 100,000 miles. My question is what do I do about coolant filter? Will it not just block all the gunk from being flushed out? Thanks for any insight.

does it have shut-offs on either side like a sinister filter head? either way, block the flow through it & install a new filter when you flush?

Re: 6.0 Powerstroke Coolant flush procedure

i started thinking about it again. if you close either side of filter head, remove filter & just open drainc0ck, opening one of the shut-offs at a time will get the fluid out of those lines. re close them, put new filter on & flush as normal. that way you won't have to worry about junk in the filter, head, or the aux lines. & Thank You for making me think on it!

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for revisiting my situation.

Re: 6.0 Powerstroke Coolant flush procedure

I am new to the powerstroke. How many miles before these engines start to see problems? I am looking to buy a truck. The 05 has 84k all stock. The 04 has 146k with EGR delete and remote oil filters. Any input would be helpful.
