Default Coolant filter?

Simply put, my friend insists that every car needs a coolant filter, not just diesel engines.

What are your thoughts on them? Its a relatively inexpensive investment to keep the coolant clean

I went a bit over the five-year period for changing out my HOAT coolant in the PT. The used coolant looked fine. Any particles were in the mix were extremely tiny--and few. So why mess with a good thing? Besides, you might end up partially blocking the flow--or slowing it down. And the filter may even collect who knows what--and eventually block your flow, to boot.

My owners manual calls for a drain, flush and refill at 100,000. Follow the instructions and like Tim said, it will be fine. No need for a filter.

Yeah id figure thatd be all ud need but he insists that every car get one just in case lol. While i dnt know the cost of the filter and install and how to do it. if it wasnt too expensive which he claims its not maybe id do it just for tye heck of saying I did. But really i dont know. Maybe if he buys everything for me id do it!
