metal shavings

Hello all, do any metal shavings in the filter housing mean the end of the HPFP? Just changed my fuel filters at 10,000 miles and found some metal shavings. I still have esp 67,000 mile, went to dealer with fuel sample and filters, they did some test? called Ford they said some metal is normal, keep a eye on it? I saved my samples and filters.08 job 3

I've had a few shavings in there from time to time. The first time I saw some was over 80k ago. I think one or two would be normal but definitely keep an eye on it.

Little is not bad but a picture would help.

As metal in the secondary bowl is telling you the filter is doing its job so far and. Guess it can't be too bad as you didn't say you were having wot problems.

Have you been using fuel conditionaries?

It could be crap from the fueling station tank. Well I hope.

I changed my filters last week and noticed a few metal shavings for the first time. 40k miles on the truck and filters changed every 8-10k. I changed out last week due to fuel gelling. I'm sure it's in my head but the truck feels slower to get up to speed. Hopefully those 4 or 5 flakes I saw will be the last and only time I see them. Fingers crossed.

The metal is from the low pressure pump gearotor assembly the way this happens is from water and air bubbles combined. Also aftermarket filter not pushing plunger in all way or the cap on pump not seated. Check your low fuel pressure with gauge at wide open throttle. I've seen many techs check it setting still and 4 to 8 psi is good put as soon as you put demand on it the pressure tanks. Hope this helps.
