fuel filter


  1. '86 2.9L fuel filter canister bypass

    Good evening so I've struggled with this black, twist apart fuel filter for long enough. I'm wanting to run a filter like today's modern, shiny, one-line in, one-line out filter and just straight line the return right back to the tank. Is that going to cause any issues? And if ii can what fuel...
  2. Sputtering engine (still) after fuel pump replacement

    Hey all, I've got a 1993 Ranger 4.0 V6 4x4 that has been giving me some issues. Long story short, it started sputtering and losing power about 6 months ago, so it sat for a while as we can function with just one car in our house, luckily. During this time I changed the oil, spark plugs & wires...
  3. Need Help! Have a Question

    I have a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge FF 3.0 motor in a 1998 XLT body. It was a lengthy swap to say the least. What my problem is now? I can't get the stupid fuel filter off! The space between the filter and the front line is too little to get the tool in. I tried the pen cap to no avail. I took a...
  4. 98 Ranger 4.0 unique fuel filter

    Removed the old filter as it was completely rusted over and had never been changed (~70,000mi). Unfortunately, cannot read any manufacturer info from it. Got it out with some resistance due to expanded rust. Replacement filter purchased at Autozone (confirmed as a fit for the vehicle) is exact...

I was also...
  6. Sporadic no start fuel issue

    Hi everyone, I bought a ranger a few months ago as a project truck. When I first got it it would sometimes start and the engine would die shortly after. RPMs would drop and it would sputter off. I replaced the fuel filter and it solved the issue. 500 miles later it started acting up again...
  7. 1990 bronco II poss fuel system problem

    Its been running fine other than idling a little high (2.9 liter EFI 5 speed stick - about 1200/1400 in neutral or with clutch depressed). Starts easily when cold, but when warm is a little harder to start and seems to 'miss' a little at first, then smooths out. Today after driving about 40...
  8. Need your opinion

    I've been looking around at fuel filters because mine needs replacing. First of all, is there any real difference between the cheap and expensive ones, or is it cause they are brand names? Second, I came across these universal inline fram filters too...
