Sinister coolant filter

Every since I installed the coolant filter my truck leaks coolant If I turn the valves off it stops leaking I can't pinpoint where it's coming from ether just wondering if anyone has had this problem

Re: Sinister coolant filter

Yea did you wrap the bolt with the lock tight paper? I forgot on one bolt and it leaked but after I wrapped it up I was good to go. Good luck.

Re: Sinister coolant filter

take the fittings out where the lines run into the filter housing and wrap them with Teflon Tape ( im assuming thats what he means by lock tight paper) that should help you out. I had a similar issue. Little teflon tape on the fittings, tighten her down...good to go

completley stock truck...just a simple cat back system....and maybe a few other odds and ends
