JEFF RYAN’S 475 HP CAT
430,000 MILES WITH ZERO OIL CHANGES
Ryan installed his Gulf Coast Model O-2 on his New Western Star in 2001.
Jeff changed the Gulf Coast Filter elements and pulled oil samples every
10,000 miles. At the time these photos were taken, September 27th, 2004,
Jeff had run 430,000 miles with zero oil changes. Jeff has also used the
Gulf Coast Oil Analysis Program since the truck was new and at 430,000 miles
Gulf Coast Filters called Jeff to inform him his last oil sample had signs
of a coolant leak. Gulf Coast Filters recommended that Jeff go to the
nearest Cat Dealer and have the engine checked. The coolant leak was found
and the engine was repaired and is now back on the road. By Gulf Coast
Filters detecting the coolant leak at an early stage, Jeff determined we
saved him from a catastrophic engine failure. Jeff had pulled 42 perfect
samples and the 43rd caught the coolant leak. This is a fine example of the
importance of oil analysis; any one of Jeff’s 42 samples could have been
like the 43rd if the coolant leak had occurred earlier. The mechanics that
repaired his engine were very impressed with how clean all the parts were.
By seeing these photos you can understand that the Gulf Coast Bypass Oil
Filter can eliminate your routine oil changes. What we do is based on
scientific fact backed up with oil analysis and we can do the same for you.
