fuel filter location?

Hi Guys

i've searched but no success. Where is the fuel filter on my 95 powerstroke? under the intake cover i assume? i thought i would check to see if there is ant oil in with the fuel. Is there a way of checking to see if the filter is bad without removing?

Thanks you guys have been very helpful.

the filter housing is on top of the engine by the turbo it has a round lid with raised slots on it you can lay a screw driver length ways across the top in between the slots to turn it loose if it is to tight to do so by hand, there is an o-ring on the threads of the cap put a ;little oil on it before you re-install at least this is how my 97' was hope it helps.

yep you got it thats where she is...ill add though that if it is too tight, don't get pissed off and break those raised slots. it will make it a pain to reinstall and then take off again.

What they Said, but I'll add it's under the access panel in the black shroud on top of the engine.

You can drain it if you want. The fuel will come out of a metal tube under the alternator when you turn the yellow valve. Catch it in a can to look for water or oil. When I change mine, i don't drain it unless I see water in the bowl. Sometimes when you drain it, the valve will start leaking and have to be replaced.

You can **** that valve open to drain all the fuel out of the housing. It's easiest to work with the filter lid if you take the cover off the top of the motor, there are only 3 1/2" nuts that hold it on.
