Be careful when changing filters. I ran into this on my last filter change. I bought a new filter in January, it came with a new cap, and a taller filter. At the time, I didnt realize that anything was wrong, so I used the new filter and cap. 2 weeks ago, I wanted to change filters, and when I went to the parts store, I got a small cartridge filter with the 2 tabs on the top. Of course, in January, I threw out the cap, which, in retrospect was the original Ford filter cap, which accepts the filter with the cartridge.
I bought a Purolator filter that came with a new cap as well, and the filter was attached to it. It was my only option, because I didnt have the original Ford filter cap.
I guess the moral of my long winded story, be careful when changing filters, if they come with a new cap, they are pretty much only good for the filter they came with. And DONT throw out the original Ford filter cap.
