Direct Injection Performance coolant filter

I'm New to the whole diesel world so bare with me, but what is the reason for adding a coolant filter? I'm sure it has a good purpose so can you please explain?

Thanks Everyone :Thumbup:

When the block was cast and flushed...some of the casting sand particles were left in the coolant passageways. These particles eventually wear on the water pump. The filter gets 'em outa there.

Some have reported having their filter plug within 3 months of putting it on from all the casting sand left in the block.

Kermit's coolant system is nice and it works with the bigger bank's intercooler tube and it's easier to change and the hoses are good quality...I would reccomend his set up....

you are suppose to flush your coolant system at 100k miles but buy then a lot of the damage is done in my opinion..This is a list of the things your coolant flows through...
egr cooler
radiator
transmission cooler
oil cooler
heater core
lot's of expensive stuff .....the big rigs run them so why shouldn't we..lol..

hmmm, I have 225K miles on my original engine, I get it flushed every 100K miles, and I have not had a problem so far. Still on original water pump, thermostat, and Radiator too.

Not saying that the filter is a bad thing though!

Good Info I'll deffinitly look into getting one. How often do you change the filter and how do you tell if its clogged with contaminents?

:thanks:
