XDP Ford 6.7L Coolant Filtration System

XD192_XDP
The XDP 6.7L Coolant Filtration System (Part Number: XD192) is an excellent add-on for any stock or modified 2011-2015 Ford 6.7L Powerstroke. The 6.7L’s primary cooling system is responsible for cooling the most vital components on your engine, which includes your engine block, cylinder heads, oil cooler, turbocharger, and EGR cooler. Because of the cast engine design, contaminants such as casting sand and sediment are commonly left over after the engine is manufactured. Keeping your cooling system free from such debris is crucial to the life and performance of your engine.

The XDP Coolant Filtration System comes with everything needed for installation. This system is built around an easy to find parts store filter and can be installed easily with your basic hand tools. No modifications or cutting of your factory hoses required!

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Remove the driver side coolant overflow tank cap.

Step 2: Drain approximately 3 gallons of coolant from the primary cooling system. (This coolant drain is located on the bottom, driver side, of the radiator.)

Step 3: Using the supplied thread seal tape, go over all of your threads to ensure the kit has a proper seal.

Step 4: Attach the mounting bracket to the XDP filter base using the supplied hardware.

Step 5: Install the supply hose, return hose and hex plug into the XDP filter. The hex plug is threaded into the side of the filter base closest to the “X” in the logo. The supply hose, with the 90° fitting, threads into the front of the filter base below the “XDP” logo. The return hose, with the tee fitting, is threaded into the side of the filter base closest to the “P” in our logo.

Step 6: Install the fully assembled filter base to the driver side cowl where the ground strap is located. Remove the factory bolt and ground strap. Mount the base using the same factory bolt, supplied lock washer and nut. Be sure that the ground strap is reattached. xd192_xdp_10_web

 

Step 7: Thread the aluminum tube into the hex block and tighten.

 

Step 8: Using a 19mm deep socket, remove the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) DSC_4944sensor from the coolant crossover. The sensor is located on the driver side of the engine in the coolant crossover. You will find the sensor above the coolant pump and next to the thermostat housing. XD192 - Sensor Location

 

Step 9: Thread the hex tube assembly into the area the ECT was located. Using a wrench, tighten the assembly until one of the three open ports is facing directly towards the rear of the truck.DSC_4947

WARNING: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE ASSEMBLY, THIS WILL DAMAGE YOUR COOLANT CROSSOVER.

Step 10: From the front of the truck, thread the hex plug into the opening facing the rear, thread the barbed fitting into the opening on left and thread the ECT sensor into the opening on the right. Reconnect the ECT sensor wiring.DSC_4981

Step 11: Connect the supply hose, the line from the front of the filter base, to the open barbed fitting on the hex block. Secure the line using one of the supplied hose clamps.

 

Step 12: Route the return hose from the filter base to the front of the overflow tank. Remove the factory hose from the tank and insert the tee fitting into the factory hose using the factory clamp. Install the supplied short section of coolant hose in-between the tee fitting and the tank using the supplied hose clamps.

  1. Tips regarding the coolant filter install on 2016 F350 6.7L: 1) tighten the hose fittings and hex plug on the filter manifold TIGHT before you install, otherwise its a bitch fixing the leaks with the system installed…especially the 90 degree inlet elbow fitting, 2) The black threaded tube that goes into the ECT housing by the thermostat has long, long threads that, when installed and tightened, go too far up into the black hex block that comes with the kit (the hex block is where the outlet hose from the engine and temp sensor go). Thus, I had to use a Dremel tool after the damned thing was installed to grind off some of the tube threads that were visible in the port where the temp sensor screws in. Otherwise, you can’t screw in the temp sensor into the hex block because the nipple on the temp sensor hits the threaded end of the tube. Best to notice this when you first install the tube into the hex block, and do the Dremel dance before you install the tube/hex block onto the engine.
