    Does anyone know the porpoise of that coolant filter? Someone must know! Speak up!

    I've got a coolant filter on the 05 F250 diesel I drive. The reason why is because the 6.0's were prone to having excessive remnants of casting materials (i.e. engine sediment or engine sand). These excessive materials are also prone to clogging & potentially damaging the bottom end tank of the radiator (which hints the Mishimoto Radiator in the truck in this video), clogging & damaging the EGR Cooler, clogging & damaging the oil cooler. The oil cooler has both oil and coolant passing through the same unit and the coolant & oil passages can be prone to breaking thus resulting in coolant mixing with the engine oil caused primarily by blockage in the coolant passages from said engine sand or metallic materials in the oil passages.

    But it's not uncommon for coolant filters to be utilized by diesel engines. You'll see quite a few Class 8 Semi Trucks equipped with a coolant filter.

    Also note that if a 6.0 is low on coolant.. pull EGR Valve and inspect for Black Toothpaste (i.e. coolant soaked soot). If there's indications of such the EGR Cooler is done. Another way of a 6.0 to lose coolant is blown headgasket (not uncommon if running a tune while still utilizing stock headgaskets and head bolts).

    Here's hoping it doesn't return. I'll vouch that the 6.0 are riddled with its fair share of hydra morphing gremlins. You resolve one another surfaces like a bad rash.

    sigh enough of my informative rant. I really enjoy your videos Ray. Keep it up man👍✌️

    Can you do a day in the life please? Would love to see what you get up to and how many doo doos there are in a day. Oh and how much brake clean you use. Thanks.

    I am not a mechanic. I know enough to be dangerous. That said, I really find your videos informative, and entertaining. Something that's rare for videos on the old tube. You have loads more patience than I do, I think if I were doing that particular repair, I would be using f-bombs like commas. Keep up the good work.

    Free Tip Friday….. Always put cardboard on that radiator when working next to it. Nice job editing out the swear words LuL

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Hackenberg says:

    I see the problem, it is written right there on the steering wheel

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aloha 449 says:

    That is an oil bypass filter.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Snarski says:

    You can do the belt without removing the shroud fan and stator. I find by removing the tensioner makes it much easier. Belt by itself pays 2.4 hrs

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blake Lantz says:

    did you eve check that the swich in the cab is working? as to me everything else is good youve got new parts and im asuming that any parts you didnt relpace you ched that thier still working. wich only leaves the swich its self or the wire its self. plz keep in mind im not a macanic and have only worked on reager gas cars, so take what i say with a hint of doubt.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars k. roy says:

    WHAT A PITA!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Ershler says:

    I almost thought that you were going to forget to check the size of the new un-shiney condenser. But I was relieved to see you check it at the last possible moment. Good 👍🏻 catch. 🤗

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Pilgrim says:

    You can cut those metal crimp sleeves off of those T fittings like that, replace the hose, and put a standard hose clamp on it. I hate those ford a/c lines. They are always easy to connect together until you replace a line in a tight spot. That’s when you get an aftermarket line that doesn’t want to click past the spring and makes you want to throw something.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Snarski says:

    That coolant filter deal is supposed to help keep the oil cooler coolant side from getting plugged up.Waste of money IMHO

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott M says:

    The coolant filter is common on heavy trucks and busses. Besides filtering, they often have a cake of coolant conditioner that slowly dissolves over time. You know if it is present in a new filter because you can shake it and hear it bounce around inside the filter.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dale Scribner says:

    Really admire your work ethic. You methodically take things apart without swearing at engineers. Good job.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob V says:

    I have a 6.0 and I use the coolant filter. Ford has a specific coolant that can over time can break down and form solids in the system, the coolant goes thru the oil cooler on top of the engine and if the solid are formed in the coolant it will clog the oil cooler and self destruct the engine. SO THE FILTER IS JUST A SAFETY THING.

    Did anyone else catch him checking the ac machine for pressure at the end after disconnecting it? 🤣🤣💀🤘✌️

    I was talking to the screen when you found that orifice tube saying it's in the wrong tube

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Sieverts says:

    r series mack trucks have a spin on on water treatment tablets witch look the same as a filter. I think the f 350 is the same set up.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JoeZ732 says:

    Notice no base oil pressure on instrument cluster while cranking. Georotor / front cover worn or it sucked a needle bearing from lifter.
    Could also be / more likely to be bleeding high pressure oil from a small tear or break in the IPR screen in the HPOP. Common.
    Check ICP while cranking. Needs 550psi or better to run and IPR duty between 15 to 85%
    If long crank with engine already hot after sitting 5 or 10 mins, then Dummy plugs in HPO rails atop injectors.
    10mm heads on the dummy plugs / stand pipes came from Navistar. 12mm is the revision.

    Fuse , maybe. 🤔

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    You skipped over what you were going to show us in the wheel well.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars william meszko says:

    Ray,
    Previous tech did NOT remove and replace the orfice tube, instead jamming the replacement orfice tube into the suction line where it did nothing. If the OE orfice tube (which should have been replaced but wasn't), was partially blocked, it likely led to the demise of the replacement compressor.
    I'm amazed at all of the crap under the hood of a vehicle which should be easy to work on. Just awful.
    Thanks for the video!

    enjoyed the video!!!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    Were the o-rings on that HVAC manifold installed?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    Did you make sure the orifice filter was seated all the way to the crimped pipe?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars billy jones says:

    A lot of the bigger diesels engines have a coolant filter

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Potvin says:

    "It's like phalange purgatory down here, where fingers go to die!" I'm still laughing!!!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Stonacek says:

    The coolant filter is used on the 6.0 to filter out sand and rust and also scale that comes from the Ford coolant as it passes through the EGR cooler and gets the oil cooler plugged up then oil temps will go sky high while towing. You will find this to be a very common ad on for the 6.0 Ford diesels

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary D says:

    I run a water filter on my 2001 dodge diesel always have, back in the day many people did, At one time it was a roll of tp in a can amazing how it works good that filter might need changed out as no dripping filter probably clogged

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheBlueberrys Workbench says:

    Well ill be dipped. More work.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Baldwin says:

    I'm not sure but the filter on the coolant system could well be a conditioner/ anti corrosion filter. Full of rocks that slowly devolves and stops the block corroding…

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Mobley says:

    A mechanical coolant filter on the Cooling System of an engine will control the pH, flow rate and boiling point of the coolant while permitting the use of a fully formulated, premixed, lifetime coolant

    Enjoy a beer. Looking forward to Pt. 3

    good job on a junky truck , to be continued!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rotor Head says:

    What is the point in repairing anything on a 6.0?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Reiss says:

    Early 6.0l engines had casting sand left in crevices in the block. The safety net was to put in a coolant filter just incase some sand found its way into the coolant over time.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Hitchcock says:

    The hard start of the diesel is because of the high pressure oil pump. It is by passing and not letting it build up pressure to provide fuel to the injectors

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Brown says:

    Nothing like spending a hour trying to get to something without spending the 30 minutes to remove stuff. LOL
