Coolant filter

Waste of money or not? Are ebay kits safe?

Re: Coolant filter

7.3 doesn’t need it but sure why not! Compare the expensive kits vs the Ebay kits - most likely the same with different filter element

Was just searching around. And it popped up. Pretty sure I got a pretty clean system after the last few days....

Re: Coolant filter

I flushed my coolant system before adding a filter. The first filter plugged up in less than a day. The second lasted another 2 days. The third one I'm not really sure because I didn't check it for a while but I ended up changing it about a month later. Its pretty amazing how much crud is floating around in there. Even when you think you have it clean. I now change mine every oil change.

I don't think its 100% necessary but they are nice to have. I would recommend trying it and seeing for yourself how much the filter will catch.
