Filter found

Hi all, while changing my oil and filter on my 2000 Cummins ISC Newmar Dutch Star I found another spin on filter. It is a Fleetguard WF 2071. I can't find this filter anywhere in my books or how often it is to be changed. I googled it and know it is some sort of water filter. Can anyone tell me more about this filter?

Hello, The 2071 is a coolant filter w/additive in it. On the ISC you have to get coolant test strips and check the SCA level of the coolant. Here is other postings on this https://www.google.com/search?q=sca+...earch=irv2.com for you to read up on.

You will see a vertical closure tab on the filter mount that has to be turned 90 deg. to close the valve. Be prepared to get a little coolant down your arm.

Yes, as stated above, it is a coolant filter. Be "gentle" when closing the valve....it, as I recall, is an aluminum setup and can be broken. And don't forget to reopen it when finished....I almost forgot to reopen mine!

BTW, if you are using now or are going to use an Extended Life coolant like Mobil Delvac with OAT formula (organic acid technology) in your ISC, you do not need the supplemental coolant additives (SCA) or the test strips. In that case, per Cummins tech line, you should go with a non SCA-charged filter such as Cummins Fleetguard WF 2077. Delvac, for example, is good for 600,000 miles on-road use before changing......"topping off" should be done with the same or comparable OAT-type coolant.

You might want to contact the Cummins filter folks to discuss.....their customer service people are great!

Hope this helps.....

Before changing to an OAT coolant check that it is compatible with what is currently in the system. You may need to a complete drain and flush if it's not.
