My first oil / fuel filter change (pics)

Well i finally took the step and decided to do my filters/ oil change last weekend. It wasnt as hard as i thought it was going to be. I had to run out and get a 36mm socket for the filters I had to improvise a funnel useing an aquiafina bottle..lol

I think the previous owner didnt use the proper oil filter because my motorcraft filter and the one i pulled out of the engine were different.

Oil filter i used - Motorcraft FL-2016
Fuel filter - Motorcraft FD-4604

Yeah, those are a bit dirty.... How many miles since the last change? Don't forget that every 15k miles, you should change your tranny bypass filter, too. It's located on the RH side of the frame rail near the radiator.

Way to get it done! I love the feeling of accomplishment doing my own maintenance.

What the crap went though you tank?? My fuel filters don't look like that, maybe the previous owner thought the truck would run better with old filters.

Here's a pic of the external tranny filter (the round aluminum looking thing, next to the steering stabilizer), looking up just inside the passenger side front tire.

Im not sure of the last time the fuel filters were changed, if at all. The truck has 33k on it now.

Thanks for the pic, ill do that ASAP

Well, that might be the case, but those filters are bad because of lack of maintenance...
