Clean oil has always been important. With advances in technology, oil cleanliness is becoming an even bigger issue. Technologies like Variable Valve Timing typically use pressurized engine lubricating oil to drive various actuators. These actuators are very susceptible to contaminants. When contaminants get into these parts, not only does your engines performance suffer, so does your wallet as damaged parts need to be replaced in order to restore the lost performance. The solution? Install an Amsoil Bypass Oil Filtration System!
The Ford 6.0 Liter Diesel engine is a well known example of an engine that needs to have a very clean oil supply. This engine uses engine driven oil pumps to deliver extremely high pressure oil to the fuel injectors. This high pressure oil is used to drive a piston in each injector that in turn pressurizes the fuel and forces it through the injector nozzle. Sort of like a syringe that needs to cycle thousands of time per minute. You can imagine how contamination in the oil would cause wear in this injector piston, which I can assure you, it does.
In the photos above, CPS Automotive and Marine in Grimes, Iowa has installed an Amsoil Bypass Oil Filter kit in this Ford Super Duty F-350. This truck has already had it's injectors replaced on more than one occasion in it's life due to oil contamination. The owner has decided to have the engine oil and primary full flow filter changed to Amsoil products along with the fuel filters, too. The Amsoil fuel filter for the Ford 6.0 liter will remove contaminants in the fuel down to 4 microns, further reducing wear on the injectors.
The Amsoil Bypass Filtration System will remove particles in the oil that are 2 microns or larger. The synthetic filter media is 98.7% efficient at removing particle at 2 microns. This in essence delivers analytically clean oil. The life span of the replaceable filter cartridge is 60,000 miles or 600 hours or 2 years.
While the Ford 6.0 Liter Diesel's injection system may be susceptible to contaminated oil and fuel, these issues can be remedied with these Amsoil products. In less than an hours time, Dan and his guys can have a Bypass filter installed on your Ford 6.0 Diesel. See our partners page for CPS Automotive and Marines contact information. Tell them Matt sent you!!
Amsoil also makes Bypass filter kits for nearly any engine. Engine wear is predominantly caused by particles of 4 microns and larger in the engine oil. You can see why it is a huge benefit to get those particles out of the oil.
