Re: coolant filter change interval

When it stops flowing coolant.

I have yet to change my filter and it has been on there about a year now.

Re: coolant filter change interval

Check it periodically by holding your hand on the filter. When it gets plugged up and no longer flows coolant, it will not be hot. My first filter plugged up in about a month, the second took about three months and my current filter has been there for several years now. I use an IR thermometer these days to check filter temp and compare it to water pump temp. Since they are pretty close, I know it is still flowing coolant. Since this is a bypass filter, there is no harm done when it plugs up and stops flowing.

Huh? What CSI,,, do you have a guage that shows coolant flow through the filter? Or Coolant temperature after the filter?
I didn't think you had room for any more gauges........

When it plugs up, 50,000 miles, 1,000 hours, or 1 year. There are also some long life filters available. They are rated for 150,000 miles. I don't know what the time interval is for the long life ones.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

I have since switched back to rubber line, the clear stuff just did not hold up like I had hoped.
