Angry check these nice fuel filters...

I just purchased a used 2008 F250. The salesman was your typical cheesy used car sales man blowing smoke up my ***. Told me all maintenance was just done on the truck. I had feeling he was lying so today I changed my oil and fuel filters.
Take a look at these. I don't think they have ever been changed


Looks like a damn oil filter






I'm so pissed off right now... He sold me the truck with a DPF delete pipe on it, I am debating turning his *** in to the state of TN and ford saying he illegally sold me a vehicle that had the emissions tampered with.

The fuel filters aren't the first problem I've had either. The truck was out of alignment big time, tires only had 30lbs of pressure in them, floor mats to the truck were in the bed and they had been rained on...

the good news is the truck is way better off with the dpf delete.. you need to figure out what kinda tuning it has running on it though.. but those filters are definitely not good, you just gotta hope your pump and injectors are are ok.

From the looks of the filter he definitely lied. I don't know if I would want a truck that had the dpf removed. How did the previous owner drive it. WOT light to light?
You have something to hold over him, selling without the dpf. Trade for another. It also looks like water was in one of the filters.

The only bit of good news is that the dashdaq only has the spartan 150 and spartan 210 tunes in it.
I haven't received any DTC's so I am hoping everything is ok and I caught it all in time

if i were you i would definitely go up to your local auto parts store and buy fuel injector cleaner to add to your tank. i use diesel kleen and it works wonders. you have nothing to lose so why not give it a try.

So just to clarify, you're mad because you didn't hold your horses and get an inspection before you bought it.

That sucks.

Seriously, it sucks. But c'mon man, why would you buy a used vehicle from a "Typical Cheesy Salesman" without getting it checked out.
