first powerstroke-fuel filter trouble
My new to me powerstroke is running great. It is a 2000 6 spd. 4x4. I noticed the fuel filter housing leaking. Looks upon quick inspection that the cap is leaking. I could turn it by hand. It was snug. Are these things supposed to be hand tight? Also checked filter while I was there. It had alot of gunk on top. Looked like rusty sludge color. Could this be metal on filter that rusted? Truck sat for several months. Also spilled a lot of fuel putting filter back in. Any remedies to not spill all over motor?last question... can you degrease and spray off these motors? Or is this a bad idea? Sorry for multiple. Questions. Just a little out of my norm here.
