you can get them. I just bought a 03, so now I have 2 Impala LS cars. Anyway, it needed some intake gaskets. I drained all the coolant and pulled the knock sensor. There is a ton of s**t floating around and doubtful if I can get half of it with another flush and fill.

But yes they make inline coolant filters. Just seeing if anyone was using them.

When I changed my intake mfld, & gaskets, it took 3 coolant flushes over 2 years to get all the crap out. Finally the coolant is clean. Years ago, I used a Prestone kit where a fitting was inserted into the heater hose line, & a garden hose would attach to it. Turn on the hose, & everything was back flushed out the top of the radiator. Can't use it now, as my heater core leaks, so no heater hoses. Don't need heat in Florida. GARY
