Jabsco Pumpgard In-Line Strainers : Can this withstand the heat generated from an engine? I want to use it to filter anti-freeze before it enters the heater core on my Jeep? I would plumb it into a heater hose and leave it there. Thanks.

Wish I had the answer on that. I use it to filter the fresh water coming into my carpet cleaning machine, it sits on the floor of the carpet cleaning cargo trailer. Mine froze and broke, now I have it suspended so hopefully it will not do that again. It is fairly stout, I would think it would hold up to some pretty good heat in an engine compartment.

I Don't know the answer to your question. I use this filter to protect my water pressure pump on a trawler yacht, and would not expect this mostly plastic item to handle engine coolant. It works fine to clear debris from my water tank, but that's very different from your proposed use. You'll have to call Jabsco for a truly knowledgable answer.
