Dirty Filters

well I get a call from a friend today who has a 06 6.0 saying he lost some MPG and power. I tell him to stop by a part place pick a fuel filter pack and come to my house. Well when we finally go these suckers out I stared in disbelief. The picture speaks for itself. Apparently they haven't been done in almost 30k miles

Nice, I had one come in once that had 100,000 on original filters. They were hour glass shaped and were completely sucked together in the middle. It took out all the injectors and the fuel pump.

Wow, those are bad! It is a good thing he has you for a friend. Maybe try to get him to log on to the ORG and we can try to explain about maintenance... Oh and have him replace his tranny bypass filter (15k miles) and check his air filter as well.

Look at the service intervals. 20k for fuel filters, IIRC ford calls for 15k fuel filter intervals.


**On that note, I am approaching 15k, what trans bypass filter should I use?
