Metal in fuel filter bowl
Pulled the truck in the garage the other night, smelled fuel. Was dripping out the water drain tube, traced the issue back to the fuel/water drain o-rings... in the process, I decided to change the fuel filter, was way over due. When I pulled it out, I found metal shavings in the bottom of the filter bowl. Should I be worried? I think so, but maybe someone would know if this is a major problem... my only guess is the fuel pump is on it's way out... and shavings are ending up in the filter bowl. Truck still runs fine...
Help... any ideas?
