Overheating while towing after coolant filter installed

installed bypass coolant filter in my '04 E450. Only problem was lost o-rings in quick disconnect at firewall when replumbing for flush kit. fixed that. now it wants to get hot when towing my fiver. first time was in mountains so thought that was it. then did it again when only on flat terrain. no problems when not towing. never a problem prior to flush and filter install. Any ideas? thanx in advance guys.

How did you plumb the coolant filter?

Re: Overheating while towing after coolant filter installed

How many times have you changed have you changed the filter since you installed the kit? The first should be replaced ~1k, then the next about 2-5k, then you should be good for "awhile" on the third.

Depending on where you bought the kit at will tell you your filter change intervals, I've never read 1k after you install a kit. Just check out dieselsite.com that should give you some clue ab filter change intervals. Hope this helps

Re: Overheating while towing after coolant filter installed

desielsite kit. haven't changed filter yet, but that should be immaterial, given that it is plumbed as a bypass filter. 1st overheat was 200 miles down the road. then fine till towed again. still haven't had the chance to check fan by towing. what can i do to check fan without towing?

Re: Overheating while towing after coolant filter installed

Either a bad install, causing a leak or you blocked something or something else unrelated changed. I see no way the installation of a coolant filter could cause your truck to overheat. As you mentioned, it's a bypass filter.


In any event, good luck.
