Fuel Filters

Hey Guys. Just did my first oil change and I also changed the fuel filters. One thing i noticed is that the original engine mount fuel filter had 3 ports on it, one of which was an air bleed. The part the dealer gave me looked exactly the same with the exception of having that 3rd port. anybody notice this? I ended up putting the original back in because the truck went berserk and nearly shut itself down. oh yeah and a big thanks to the engineers at ford for making the oil drain plug on an angle instead of straight down. I didn't like my garage floor clean anywa

Fuel Filter

I was reading the 6.7 Diesel engine handbook and it states that the factory fuel filter on top of engine has three ports and one port is only used during factory assembly. Service filter will only have 2 ports. Did you turn the ignition key to on for 30 seconds and then turn it to off, for six times in a row, to bleed air out of filter prior to starting. Per truck Diesel Supplement handbook.

Third port is for vehicle assembly, likely to pull air out of the fuel system upon the initial diesel fill at KTP:

Are they easy to change like previous models? Any special tools? I'm looking really hard at the 2011.
