        Comments about Motorcraft Original Equipment Fuel Filter:

        I will be gwtting my hands on one of these filters, I sure hope for better filtration and better performance and smooth acceleration, cause the filter that is on my ruck I done had the 97 F-150 4.6 for 2 years and have not had a new fuel filter installed, i am sure that it definitely needs one on it, cause it feels like time I crank it 1st thing in morning that insufficient fuel flow is reaching through the fuel lines freely up to the fuel rail lines, then to the fuel injectors , the truck feels like it be hesitating, and stalling, a lil shake, vibrate time crank up and then to normal idle, I feel like I need a fuel filter to achieve good performance on highway at highway speeds on the interstate. I do not want the fuel pump to go out on me yet, oh no, thats why I need to go on and get a fuel filter replaced

            Comments about Motorcraft Original Equipment Fuel Filter:

            I bought a nice '92 F150. Some said this fuel filter was an easy change. They must have some type of spreader to remove the filter from the holder. I had no problems with the lines. I have the tools I need but getting the filter out after disconnecting it is a bear. I ended up tying a phone line at the top and pulling it to spread the holder open slightly and tied it off. I did the same to the lower half. After that it came out pretty easily. Hope this helps you out. I tried to be honest here. I have been working on cars since the '60s and I think this was one of the toughest fuel filters I've ever changed. There's not much room to remove the rear line but you can do it. I had some plastic line wrenches that slipped over the line and easily unlocked the spring. You can do this but it takes patience. Lots of luck.

              Good to know I cant get quality motorcraft/ford parts locally. Just replaced this as part of a tune-up on my '95 Ranger. While the other one wasn't restricted it feels good to know I will be getting better filtration with this new one.

                Good factory part that is made solid. Takes time to install. You will need a Ford fuel line disconnect tool to remove the old filter. The trouble is worth the outcome

                      I would like to see new plastic clips to come with this part, to replace old ones. The clips can easily get broken when removing them with the old ones.

                          I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                          It doesn't just pull off, you need a line tool to release the holding clips and THEN it will easily pull off.
