Not sure where you live but up North here t6 rotella synthetic.I have a 2001 Ford SuperDuty Lariat Powerstroke Diesel 7.3L with 169K on the motor. I'm trying to figure out which type of Rotella Oil I should be using. Can anyone give me some specifics? Thank you J.D.
Seriously? I really don't know if you're messing with us or not. Well, just in case you're not, and for those who may not know, it's a very low micron filter which sits outside the normal flow of oil....meaning that flow path is not critical for engine operations. It filters down to a much smaller particle level than normal filters, and flows at a much lower rate, usually about 10% of normal flow. Some state 10 microns, some 1-2 microns. Really, it depends on the filter element and the flow restrictor in place. I don't remember the brand off hand, but they used the exact same filter for full flow and bypass, yet claimed 50 microns for the full flow and something like 8 for the bypass. It was all due to the restrictions in the flow, which allowed those smaller particles to become trapped in the filter medium.What's a bypass filter? Like a second filter that will filter the oil if the original filter bypasses?
