I had intended to go to about 15k on this filter, but I was messing around with trying to get a view of my timing chains yesterday and noticed my coolant filter was seeping.
So I did the smart thing, grabbed it and tightened it 1/4 turn.
Well, that didnt work. It instantly started peeing coolant out around the gasket.
So, I pulled it off and found a ridge of rust where the filter is supposed to seal on the head. I cleaned it up and installed a new filter.
I cut it open for funsies and its pretty much as bad as last time. https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthr...ilt#Post4389034

People are still going to come in here and tell you a coolant filter does nothing lol.

Seems your system has a lot of love to give.

Thanks.
