Lol... Funny how some trucks will charge $50 labor for a 5 min job! I know a shop that charged my friends dad $250 to change the oil, oil filter and fuel filter on a 7.3. He paid that for 10 years!

Yeah I agree... My friend takes his to dealership and I keep telling him we will do it for a third of the price... But he won't listen...

Just did my fuel, air, and oil filters today.

Not that big of a job.

When I unscrewed DFCM, I had diesel continue to drip out of the lines until I put the new filter in and put it back together. I was under the impression that once the DFCM was drained, there was an anti-siphon valve in place to prevent the tank from draining. Although the DFCM is higher than the tank so I don't know how it could drain.

I did fill the tank up just prior to changing the filter so maybe my fuel level was higher than the DFCM????

Or was that just residue fuel in the fuel system draining out?

Did you change both the engine mounted fuel filter and the driver side frame-mounted filter? The frame mounted filter does indeed look easy to change. The engine mounted filter looks like it could be messy if not careful.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah I changed them both . They were actually pretty easy . The engine mounted was actually easy.. I put shop towels under the hoses and that helped.. It wasn't that bad .. Just pop the hoses off.. Then rotate counter clockwise about a 1/3 turn then pop off..

Filter Drain.

One of the video's, on one of these truck sites, showed to loosen the cannister three turns before you drain and that will stop the siphoning.

Yeah that's what I did with the frame mounted one.. Opened the drain after turning three times and seemed to drain forever but cleaned it out.

getting ready for 10,000 miles and going to change fuel air and oil filtere ( dealer did oil @ 5000 free ) I picked up all the filters foe 75.00 dam motorcraft 10-30 was 75.00 for 15 qits ( 3 x 5 qt bottles) I figure might as well do it all @ once
