FORD F150 Fuel filter specs (microns)

Does anyone know what the filtering size (microns) is for a stock fuel filter (01 Supercrew 5.4l) I am running all new fuel celllinespumpfilters etc and I am wondering whether to go with a 10 micron or 40 micron filter after the pump. I tried searching and I couldnt find any info anywhere. Thanks

ford fuel filter specs call for multi point injection system to have a maximum rating of 10 microns absolute. Smaller is much better and filters of 5 microns absolute is preferred. A particulate of 40 microns will not go thru an injector and will cause permanent damage.

FORD F150 Fuel Filter Change

I want to change the fuel filter on my 4.2 2000 F150. Well I found where it is located. However I cannot understand how to remove the fuel line tube connections on either end of the filter. There are metal clamps at the end of the tubes that are stumping me. Has anyone removed these fuel line tubes and replaced them Any help would be appreciated.

Im not recommending this. I am running the factory filter at 181K miles. My belief is that if it will still flow the max required fuel (wide open at high RPMs) it doesnt need replaced. I test this periodically but hooking up my scan tool graphing either one of the pre-cat O2 sensors and running wide open through 3500 RPMs. This does two things first is it demands the maximum fuel flow from the pump

FORD F150 fuel filter flow direction

So Im well aware that there is an arrow on the fuel filter that designates which way it is supposed to flow. However when I got under my truck to change it the other day there was a larger line and a smaller line running side by side. The fuel filter is in the smaller line as Im sure everyones is. Isnt the small line the return to tank And if so I thought the fuel filter on these was in the feed line

The smaller line with the fuel filter is a high pressure fuel supply line and the filter arrow is direction of flow to the front. That larger line also has the connectors on it but it is NOT a high pressure fuel supply line. It is part of the vapor containment system. Squirrels ate a 4 inch section out the top of mine but they just nicked the fuel supply line. fuel flow is marked so that maximum use

FORD F150 Changed fuel filter (good) Truck Dead (bad)

1997 F150 4X4 5.4L. I finally got back around to attempting to change my fuel filter on Tuesday night. Rather than use the little plastic removal tools I went and bought a small metal one that jbrew posted on here as having some luck with (not the 7 scissor type from auto zone). I told my wife Id work at it for 15-20 minutes. Well by that time I had half of it off so I couldnt quit there. Took about

Anyhow from the looks of the fuel that dumped out on the upstream side I would recommend changing this thing

FORD F150 Fuel Filter Canister

Some might know a long time ago my quick disconnects broke and I did a fairly extensive write up on a way around them. Well I am going to change my fuel filter in a few months but instead Im thinking of making it a little easier and going with one of these The key on pressure IIRC is 27-30 PSI with a max of 50 PSI engine running. I just dont want to have any surprises even though Fram says 200 PSI. I like the fact that it goes down to 5 micron. Anyone run one of these or similar setup

FORD F150 Fuel Filter

I have heard from several reliable sources that in newer vehicles if the fuel level drops below 14 of a tank repeatedly you can damage your fuel pump. Something to do with cooling it. Has anyone heard of this

My friend just had this happen in his motor home. It was frustrating to diagnos because it ran fine with more fuel in the tank. Even with only a little bit of fuel in the tank once the pump cooled down it worked for a while. I dont know that running the tank low caused the problem but his motor home has a relatively small tank and hed just done a cross country trip where he was stretching each tank out to the max. I would think that any fuel pump will wear out eventually.

FORD F150 Anyone Replaced Their Own Fuel Filter

Just wondering. I need to have the fuel filter changed and cooling system serviced and Im not sure I want to mess with it myself. Might be a good time to go meet my dealer.

Thanks for all the replies. I think Im looking for an excuse to just take it and let someone else do it. However max you hit some close to my heart I hadnt thought about. Its funny how some Techs although may be very talented dont take much care when it comes to protecting the body etc. from scratches and the like. I guess Ill buck up and do the filter myself the coolant I could do too and sinc ei

FORD USA F150 1988 Ford F150 no power to fuel pumps

1988 F150 302 efi no power to fuel pumps. I have replaced the eec relay and fuel pump relay. I can not hear the fuel pumps running. jumped the dlp fuel pump relay to return signal relay and pumps worked but still no fuel. Will start with starter fluid but dies when starter fluid burns out. took wires loose from collision swith and connected the 2 wires together and still no start or fuel. replaced

All the auto geniuses hang out here I would use the front tank for all the following tests as we know it has a new pump. 2 fuel Rail Pressures. You will need to check the pressure at the fuel rail PLEASE be careful with this step as there is very high pressure involved with this test. You will need to find the operating pressure for your engines fuel system either in a manual or your local ford

FORD F150 air filters gas mileage

For some reason people seem to think that if they put a high flow air filter in their truck it will get better gas mileage. Well I dont believe it and Im going to explain why. To start lets go over the procedure that your engine uses to determine how to use its air. Im going to use my 97 5.4 for example. At cruise the engine uses readings obtained from the barometric pressure sensor the intake air

Quote Originally Posted by tritonpwr If you take two pressure (barometric) sensors insert one behind the filter and one in open air to measure ambient pressure and run the engine through its normal operation conditions if you detect pressure lower than ambient behind the filter the filter is causing resistance.

Quote Originally Posted by tritonpwr Resistance has the same affect regardless of throttle levels. Just because resistance exists at WOT does not mean there is none at idle. Even though the throttle body is restricting air flow thereby holding RPMs down the engine must still use its own energy to pull air along the intake and to the throttle body in the first place. The air will not flow through there

FORD F150 fuel dilution

Had a used oil analysis done on my last oci 02 F150 5.4L came back as 12% fuel dilution. Was advised to change pcv(1st time) and air filter(13K) which I did and also the fuel filter(2nd time). I was running Amsoil S2K 5W-30 for the summer oil was in for 5 months with an MC filter(802s) which started to get noisy so I thought the ADBV was getting weak so I did the oil change. I know 5 months and 3600

injectors that are bleeding down allowing gas to enter the engine when it is turned off. You can have a malfuncting fuel pump that is over pressurizing the system. My best guess though is that you are making very short trips and the engine hardly ever reaches full temp for much time if at all. If this is the condition that you are using the truck you might want to consider using the cheapest ford

Well you guys are beginning to spar and get out in left field a bit. Injectors are sized to fuel the HP the engine is designed to produce. Just replacing with larger capacity units dosnt increase power. Only with diesels can you do that. The why of it is simple when you take into account that no more air is used to make more power. At less than WOT the ox sensors keep an AF ratio at 14.6 to 1 so incressing

FORD F150 Fuel Pressure Injectors MPG Mods Questions

I want to eventually change my injectors to smaller units and run higher fuel pressure. I have also installed a fuel heater between the gas tank and the FPR. This works though it is less than ideal. I would rather have the fuel heater after the FPR so the heated fuel doesnt feed back into the tank. The reduced flow through the heater would also help to dump more heat into the fuel further increasing

Update on maxcs project... The reason he had to run higher fuel pressures for max power (even with the larger injectors) was due to a MAF problem the filtergasket was offset so air was getting in past the MAF sensor. He has now reduced the pressure back down to 40psi and with the combination of fuel heat and the larger injectors the ECU thinks everything is stock. fuel trims are 3 -3. Quote When you

I pulled an enclosed trailer(5x12) about 200 miles and i havent filled up yet but it looks like its gonna be 12 or less. Most of this driving is a mix. also i have only put about 4 tanks through it since buying it.

yeah i read here to clean the maf first fuel filter might have 10k max on it and thats being very generous.

FORD F150 Transmission Filter Install Question

Well I took my 99 F-150 4X4 into the local dealership today for cruise control work and they told me that since I had 89950 miles on it that I should schedule a transmission flush. They felt that the fluid looked red enough to safely change it. I told them that Id already bought a transmission filter at NAPA and also 13 quarts of Valvoline high-mileage Mercon V ATF so Id be doing it myself. I bought

FORD F150 Cant remove gas filter

Hi All Im currently at a loss with removing my fuel filter on my 2000 F150. This is the 5.4l and I have replaced the filter approx 4 times prior with no problems. I cants get the fittings to budge. I have tried using open end wrenches around the fuel line end to get leverage to push the connector end towards the filter but no luck. The gas line ends spin but do not move up or down the filter nipples.

I battled the fuel filter way back when I use this to remove now. Done in 10 minutes max. httpwww.f150online.comgalleries....cfmnum10943

Not much that can be done for the engine - just two many cylinders to feed. Try to drive with your windows up and the AC off (remember most of the heat and defrost positions still run the AC compressor). You can add heat to the vent position without running the compressor and a high fan speed can help cool the cab on warm days. Also keep your tire pressure at the maximum safe level your front end aligned

So as you can see your 30lb injectors still have a ton left to go before you max them out. If you do the math a 30LB injector will support up to 480H.P at the flywheel. Hope this helps you out.

FORD F150 long tube headers

has anyone found long tube headers for a 4.6l . all i can find is shorties and i want my cats gone.

the trouble of sending their chips back to have a custom program done or fab them up them selves so I didnt mention it. By the way I have a set of hand built custom equal length stepped primary indiviual primary tubed long tube headers on my 875H.P PRO STREET RANGER and I barely got 25H.P by installing them. ------------------ NEAL THE H.P FREAK E-MAIL 99 F-150 XLT SPORT oxford

FORD F150 Tuner & CAI advice

HI to all. New to sight 30-minutes ago. Just purchased a 2011 F150FX4 with a 5.0. Any recommendations or sugestions for a tuner and cold air intake I have already installed a Borla exhaust system. Havent seen to many available on different sights for my year and motor. Did come across 5-Star Tunning and they offer a tuner and afe intake package. Any thoughts

a system that was specifically designed for a specific application there are very little hptq gains actually achieved in a street use vehicle and there are very few docs that these mfg&8217s can produce that actually show an increase in hptq in the power-band range of a relatively stock street vehicle. I would avoid oil impregnated filters. While they have their purpose in off-road applications fordGMDodge

FORD F150 So what about propane

Someone help me out please or point me to some threads where this has already been discussed. Gas going up fast... I paid 3.40 for real gas yesterday. I personally think itll be 5 a gallon this summer... we all know why and who. Seems to me that propane will be less effected by events in the ME and by political obstruction to domestic oil production... especially in the short-term if you know what

loss in fuel economy but they no longer offer the system on F-150s (could it be to avoid EPA fuel economy testing). Propane conversions typically get better fuel economy than what would be expected from the fuels lower BTU content per gallon. Theres no way to know the actual loss unless you bought identical propane and gasoline vehicles and did a side-by-side comparison yourself. As for the OEM ford
